The Location

You might simply want to take a stroll and absorb the great sea view, the nature and your surroundings. The lodge is situated in Gulberwick, a peaceful rural area with the convenience of being a short hop away from Lerwick.  Shetland self catering doesn't get better than this.  There's plenty to do so take a look at the surrounding location.


If you arrive in Shetland by air, you can be at Hillside Brae, by car or bus, in little more than half an hour. If you travel by sea to Lerwick, the islands’ capital, the house is less than ten minutes drive from the quayside.  It might be a bit daunting at first but travelling to Shetland is easier than you might think.

Shetland Attractions

From Gulberwick, it’s easy to reach the rest of Shetland by car, bike or bus on Shetland’s excellent road network. But there are also pleasant walks nearby including a beach and the promontory of Trebister Ness.  

Above all, Hillside Brae is a place to which you can return after a long day and know that you can relax in peace. There's so much to explore, so take a look at what Shetland has to offer or have a read of what our guests have to say.
