A RARE opportunity to purchase Fethaland, part of the Shetland Isles, has come up.

Along with the neighbouring crofts of Hooplees, Largarth and Houllsquoy, and a large 4-bedroomed family home in North Roe, this owner-occupied registered croft extends to 98.2 hectares and forms the peninsula at the most northerly tip of mainland Shetland.

It is one of the Shetland Isles’ most popular sites with both locals and tourists alike. Although now uninhabited, Fethaland has a long history of human settlement, spanning from prehistoric times right up until the twentieth century, when the fishing station, established during the 15th and 16th centuries, became redundant.

Known for its incredible scenery, and maritime and Viking History, Fethaland is arguably one of the most beautiful places in the UK, and it is thought that there will be interest from parties all around the world looking to experience rural living in the Shetland Isles and take advantage of this rare and exciting opportunity.

An idyllic location for countryside and coastal exploring, Fethaland is as interesting as it is beautiful. As well as the fascinating ‘haaf’ fishing station, there is a large oval prehistoric house situated on the lowest part of the peninsula and on the east side of the Isle of Fethaland you can find oval shapes carved into the soapstone cliffs, which are evidence of bowls from Shetland’s Viking past.

Fethaland is being sold together with a four bedroomed family home and his three registered tenanted crofts of Hooplees, Largath and Houllsquoy. Mr Murray would prefer to sell all units together, at a price of offers in the region of £595,000.
