General Information

‘Fairview’ is situated on the outskirts of the village of Symbister, the main settlement on the island of Whalsay, one of Shetland’s larger outer isles, situated off the east coast of Mainland Shetland.  Often referred to as the ‘Bonnie Isle’, the island measures approximately five miles long by two miles wide, and is home to a population of around 1,000.  

The island boasts an excellent range of amenities way beyond the level one would expect to find in a similar remote location.  These are centered around Symbister and include schools, two general stores including a post office, a doctor’s surgery, care centre & dentist.  There are excellent sporting facilities including a superb leisure centre with heated swimming pool, games hall, fitness suite, squash court & all weather sports field, plus Britain’s most northerly 18 hole golf course can be found at Skaw to the north of the island.  The island has a thriving fishing community based at the harbour in Symbister where there is a marina and boating club.  There is also a history group based in the outbuildings of nearby Symbister House. 

Whalsay has some magnificent scenery and the Ward of Clett, the highest point, provides superb views of the east coast of Shetland. 

Although providing a 'get-away-from-it-all' rural location, Whalsay is connected to mainland Sheltand by a regular ro-ro ferry service which runs from the ferry terminal at Symbister just over a mile from ‘Fairview’, to Laxo/Vidlin, and is about 20 miles from Lerwick.  Crossing time approx. 30 minutes.

A unique opportunity to aquire a substantail three reception room/four bedroom detached villa on the island of Whalsy, together with former shop premises. The shop premises, which also has garage facilities, has been renovated  with new roof, new double glazed doors and windows, with the view for conversion to a charming permanent or holiday let, or studio/gallery, cafe/craft shop use, offering a splendid income source.

 Extensively refurbished by the current owners, 'Fairview' offers spacious double glazed accommodation over two floors with a large garden and fine views westwards towards the sea and surrounding countryside.

Accommodation: Sitting room, dining room, library/study/playroom, 4 double bedrooms (2 en-suite), family bathroom, hall, & conservatory.
