Welcome to Snarraness House


Norman and I have lived in West Burrafirth for 27 years and after completely renovating the property we moved to Snarraness House in 2000.  We were born and brought up close by and absolutely love the countryside.

Snarraness House is situated on the west side of Shetland and is 27 miles from Lerwick.  The area is very scenic and, as you drive down to Snarraness House the sea opens up before you on either side of the road and our house is situated on what is almost an island, looking towards the dramatic sea and cliffs.  There is an abundance of wildlife and plenty of hills to walk over.

We have three bedrooms - 'Rock', 'Hogan' and 'Kellister' to let: the two upstairs are both ensuite.  The downstairs room has private facilities and its own private conservatory.  All rooms have a bath and shower.  You are also welcome to use the living room or the 'Riv Skerries lounge' where you can watch the wildlife and enjoy the scenery over a cup of tea.

Breakfast is served each morning and, by prior arrangment,  dinner is available in the evening.

Directions from Lerwick: Take the main road north and, after approximately four miles, you will find a junction to your left (A971) to Sandness.  Drive along this road approximately 16 miles until you reach a junction on your right for 'West Burrafirth, Papa Stour ferry'.  Follow this road, approximately seven miles, right to its end where you will find Snarraness House.

We look forward to welcoming you - enjoy your stay!
