Within a picturesque part of north Shetland mainland, this cozy, bungalow would be an ideal starter project as it benefits from sea views and is located in the tranquil, rural community of Lochend within walking distance to a spectacular beach and loch.

The garden grounds provide an opportunity to increase the footprint of the Property (subject to the usual consents), which currently benefits from solar panels (batteries not included) and a solid fuel stove in the Living Area as alternative electricity and heat sources.

The surrounding Northmavine community provides for local grocery shops and fuel, lunches and dinners at St Magnus Bay Hotel including its Sunday carvery, local Halls provide for community get togethers, Health Centre, schools and many stunning coastal walks.

The larger village of Brae is about 15 minutes’ drive with all amenities including restaurants, takeaways, hairdressers, DIY store, health centre, grocery shops, fuel, leisure centre and primary and high school.
