A fantastic opportunity to purchase this pleasantly situated three bedroom, detached bungalow in a quiet residential area of Virkie with stunning sea views down to Sumburgh Lighthouse and Fair Isle.

The property would benefit from modernisation. There is a low maintenance garden and a small Garage with off-road parking for one car. Ample public car spaces are available across from the property on a first come first serve basis.

The village of Dunrossness is a short distance away providing the south end with a Primary School, well stocked local shop, fuel station, agricultural shop and a Community Hall. Further North is Sandwick with its Secondary School, leisure centre with swimming pool, health centre, another shop and bakery.

There are good bus links from the airport to Lerwick some 30 minutes away. Lerwick’s amenities include many grocery and retail shops, restaurants and bars, Museums, leisure centre and Mareel Entertainment Complex with cinema and bar.

This property presents an ideal opportunity for first time buyers, a growing family, those requiring accommodation on one floor or looking to downsize or as a renovation project.

The boundaries of the property are timber slat fencing with gravelled off-road parking for one car leading to the attached small Garage with manual up and over metal door. The garage is considered too small to accommodate a modern vehicle.

There is a timber gate leading into the garden grounds from the gravelled off-road parking and another along the pedestrian pathway closer to the public parking opposite. From these access gates there are concrete pathways leading to the entrance door and around to the south side of the dwellinghouse. There are galvanised steel handrails leading up to the front door and a concrete step on the lower side.

The garden grounds are well-maintained and easy to manage with mainly grassed areas on three sides and the drying green to the south. The property benefits from spectacular sea views across Sumburgh to the Lighthouse and Fair Isle further south. There is a satellite dish attached to the dwellinghouse albeit it is in a very poor state of repair and would likely require replacing.

Public off-road parking available on a first come first serve basis opposite the property.


From Lerwick travel south towards Sumburgh on the main A970 for approx. 21.8 miles. Turn right at the bus stop where sign posted “Toab/Hestingott”. Follow the road around the bend and at the top of the road turn left onto Ninian Drive. Pass the first turning immediately on entering Ninian Drive, Number 4 is situated lower down on the left. The garage door is yellow.
