Shetland: Burrastow House

“On the remote west side of Shetland you can find spectacular scenery, peace and the ideal refuge for the escapist. The guest house welcomes you with peat fires, a cosy library and all the marvellous food you could want after a day of exploring….” This is Burrastow House , near Walls.

The house is right next to the sea. Here’s a view across the bay.

Around the back is a vegetable garden and polytunnel with herbs in. Here’s the view from the back. See all the chimneys!
