This three bedroom bungalow has picturesque, uninterrupted, sea views of Fair Isle to the south and Quendale Voe and beach to the West.

The property was built circa 1976 and requires some modernisation and renovation. It is situated on the south-west corner within the quiet cul-de-sac of Sanblister Place and has well-maintained garden grounds providing for a quiet and private outside area. It is within a short walk to the coast line for exploring and wildlife watching.

Virkie is the most southerly district of Shetland with Scatness nestled over the hill from the airport. Due to its proximity to the airport,  there is a regular bus service, running from the end of road to Dunrossness (Primary School and grocery shop), Sandwick (Primary and High School, Leisure Centre, grocery shop and Bakery) onto Lerwick (the capital of Shetland), which is about 30 minutes by car.

This property presents an ideal opportunity for a first time buyer, as a family home and those seeking a quieter rural lifestyle.
