CooGrind is perfectly positioned to travel to all corners of the islands, the roads are much better than in most of England to getting about is easy and traffic is very light. The apartment is well-equipped and very comfortable, it is attached to the owners property with great views from the windows and patio area.The owners are excellent hosts, a great help when our (brand new) hire car sprang a fuel leek on their drive. We also had a very enthusiastic welcome from the little dog, Olly.
There is a beautiful beach (Meal beach) a few minutes walk away and a small , useful shop near the slipway a short walk into Hamnavoe village. Scalloway is 10-15 mins away and Leerwick 20-25 by car.
A feature of Shetland at this time of year is community events at the many community halls . We had fabulous tea and cake and soup at Bicton and Aith and Fish and Chips at the Burra hall near CooGrind. Visiting tourists are made very welcome, watch out for road signs and adverts in the weekly Shetland times.
This is a great place to stay at when visiting Shetland. Carole was very nice and helpful, the accommodation was warm, comfortable and clean and the views are gorgeous.
I'd certainly return!

Can only really echo the excellent reviews already given to Coogrind. Carole runs a great set up. Warm, comfortable, spotlessly clean with all the amenities you could need. Bed is indeed far too comfortable!
Location is also excellent for visiting Island.
Will certainly return as others have....if Carole has availability that is"
This is a gem and the fact that we've now visited three times says everything. Coogrind is a spotlessly clean, luxurious, stylish apartment overlooking Meal Beach and the bay; it is ever so convenient for Scalloway, Lerwick, all places north and of course the airport at Sumburgh. The welcome from Carole and her family is amazing. And when you visit, just look through the positive comments from worldwide travellers in the Visitors' Book. Brilliant! Visit soon and see for yourself.

We've just had a great week at coogrind. Carole the owner was so welcoming and helpful telling us of great places to visit and of the local walks. The accommodation was spotless and has everything you need. There is a really comfortable bed . Only downside was it was so comfy I didn't want to get up in a morning. The views right from the doorstep are amazing . I would definetly recommend to everyone.
Thank you for a great holiday.
