- In More Detail
Extensive improvements and internal adjustments of some rooms have been made, but without any structural alterations which would have required planning permission or building warrants, and have been carried out to a very high standard. The owners are having to sell for health reasons and are sad to leave the Island of Fetlar.
Lifeboat!- One unusual feature of this property is that there is a large metal crate near the gate containing an orange lifeboat. This was purchased for conversion to a fishing / pleasure boat but due to ill health the project has been shelved. The boat is available for sale separately or can be removed.
The local shop is being re-opened on the Island which has been called the Garden of Shetland. Access to the Island of Fetlar is by two inter island ferries details of which are on the Shetland Islands Council website :- http://www.shetland.gov.uk/ferries/documents/TimetableSummer2017V2.pdf
Fetlar has for long been an island renowned amongst ornithologists and naturalists the world over. Not only is it Britains premier site for the beautiful red-necked phalarope - boasting over half of the countrys breeding population - the island is also famed for hosting the UK's first and only breeding pair of snowy owls which bred successfully between the late sixties to the mid-seventies. It has a great range of activities and attractions, especially outdoors. Buildings of interest include Brough Lodge, Leagarth House and Smithfield as well as the Roundhouse. There is excellent fishing for brown trout in local lochs. An unusual geology including the Funzie conglomerate makes it an important part of the Shetland Geopark.
The Fetlar Interpretive Centre is at the Beach of Houbie, in a central location on the island, and is a community museum awarded a Visit Scotland four-star tourist attraction. The museum contains various displays on island history, including the award-winning section on Sir William Watson Cheyne and his contribution to antiseptic surgery.
For walkers, routes can be recommended to cater for subjects of interest such as geology, archaeology, botany etc.
