I highly recommend this apartment! The location and views are exceptionally beautiful even by Shetland standards and the situation is conveniently close to both the airport (about 15 mins) and Lerwick (about 30 mins). The apartment was very well-equipped and spotlessly clean, and was very...More

About the neighbourhood
The South Mainland of Shetland is marked by the people who have lived here for generations & rich in archaeological remains. Levenwick boasts a Broch & everywhere are the markings of old fields & ruined homes. Southpunds is a great place to base for exploring the surrounding areas & the rest of Shetland. Based on the East side, we experience beautiful sunrises & just over the hill on the West side stunning sunsets. During the months of April & May new life springs into action with the arrivals of many different breeds of lamb. The migrating birds return to the island to nest such as Puffins, Bonxie, Turks & many more, attracting nature lovers from all over the world. All The beauty the Shetland Islands has to Offer & More, Explore, Relax...
Getting around
Hiring a car is the only way of getting around the island conveniently. I have secure special rates for my customers booking through me with a local car rental company.

There are bus services that run throughout Shetland but not the best for the sightseeing.

There are a number of good tour companies for exploring the nature and birds Shetland has to offer. We can put you in touch with a renown tour operator who is about 15 minutes away from us.

We are 15 minutes, 8.8 miles, north from the airport. Driving north, follow the road out of the airport and turn right, sign posted (The North, Lerwick A970), 5 miles north you will arrive in Dunrossness, where you will find our local fully stock supermarket and petrol station, continue for about another 3.8 miles, once you pass a little yellow sign (THRS), you are nearly there.

Look for the brown sign (Levenwick, Levenwick Beach) and turn right. Follow the road around a few bends until you see a sign (Southpunds), red bus shelter to the right, turn right. From the dip our house is second on the left, 3 vertically wooden clad buildings.

Drive right through to the extern...
