The Area

Why visit Shetland? Why visit Culswick?

Here are just five reasons to get you thinking...

Scenery...

The apartments look out over a narrow green valley (a designated SSSI) meeting the sea with a picturesque storm beach, a 5 minute walk away.

Archaeology...

With Culswick Broch, a standing stone and numerous traditional croft remains near by the surrounding area is well known for its archaeology.

Wildlife...

Nature lovers are virtually guaranteed to see a wide range of birds across the meadow, a short walk takes you to spectacular cliffs where there are many seabirds to be viewed along with seals who will keep a watchful eye on you. Your patience may even be rewarded with a glimpse of an otter, whale, dolphin or porpoise which are all regularly spotted around the isles.

Astronomy...

This back of beyond holiday destination is also great for star gazers - Culswick does not have any light pollution - particularly valuable for viewing the northern lights.

Weather...

While in Shetland the weather is always a very important topic of conversation - as it changes frequently. Visitors are advised to bring warm waterproof clothing even for a summer visit. However, do not let the threat of extreme weather put you off - wind and waves only serve to dramatise this unique land.
