What Our Guests Say

We have just arrived home and wanted to say that we have had a wonderful and relaxing time at Fia Cottage.  The cottage was so comfortable, clean and had everything we needed and more!  It was perfect for us with a beach nearby, excellent local shop and friendly neighbours

We would definitely recommend Fia Cottage to anyone visiting Shetland as it really is beautiful.  Thank you for everything

We chose Fia Cottage due to the website where we could clearly see around the house inside and outside.  The cottage offered plenty of space, comfort and coziness and was really lovely to live in for our holiday.  The south of Shetland is particularly beautiful and within easy reach. Quendale Mill is well worth a visit and can be reached on foot.  Traveling with a motorcycle, we particularly liked the space available for the bike and all the clothing that goes with it.  We also enjoyed meeting Christine and Tommy

Fia Cottage is highly recommended – Thank you Christine and Tommy for a  wonderful two weeks at Fia Cottage!  Christina and Sascha

We had a wonderful week at Fia Cottage – we chose Fia as we thought it looked a really lovely cottage when looking through the website. We had a lovely welcome from Christine and Tommy and the cottage exceeded our expectations, it was a very well equipped and comfortable home for our Shetland holiday.  There are several great walks, Scatness, Fladabister and quite a challenging windy walk around Fitfull Head!  The local shop great and the near neighbours are all friendly and helpful

We’ll miss the place!   Jackie, Barry and Ruby – thank you!

Fia Cottage is great place to stay.  A quiet location with lovely walks from the cottage in several directions, but by car every area of Shetland could be explored no bother at all.  The owners Christine and Tommy were so friendly and gave us all the information about the cottage and use of equipment – this was also backed up in a really lovely and easy to read informational booklet with small snippets of information in an easy to read format and with photos – a really well thought out booklet! 

The cottage itself is utterly charming and oh so clean with every item you could possibly need on a Shetland holiday – loads of crockery, pots, casserole dishes, etc and even a garlic press and pizza cutter.  The cleanliness stands out as soon as you enter and the standard is highly maintained throughout.  There are so many lovely, well thought out touches, such as the fantastic light at the top of the stairs, the cosy fire in the sitting area, fabulous huge bath sheets, plenty of pillows to chose from and we really loved the retro bed-linen – so very homely indeed, yet also luxurious!

To the next guests – Enjoy!

We have always wanted to visit the Shetland Islands and are so pleased we did; the Island is beautiful and the islanders so friendly. We booked to stay at Fia Cottage and received the friendliest of welcomes from Christine and Tommy who are just wonderful hosts. The cottage is situated in a stunning location to the south of Lerwick and is decorated to a very high standard. We have two children and two Miniature Schnauzers with the location is perfect to visit the rest of the islands and take the dogs on walks in the countryside and on the beaches

We loved our time there and would highly recommend the Cottage so much so we have booked to stay again!  Richard, Janette, Grace & Harry (Oscar & Daisy the dogs)  August 2021

Fia Cottage is a lovely spacious, very well equipped cottage for a real ‘get away from it all’ holiday.  It was easily the best cottage we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in a few!).  It was so comfortable and cosy and perfect for a family holiday. Our boys loved the books and toys and the touch lamps in the bedrooms

Fia Cottage really was a perfect place for us and  just as the photos online showed it to be (not always the case and the bonus of a utility room and dishwasher!

Lovely walks down to the Quendale Bay Beach and a short car run to Spiggie Beach.   Good location for visiting all the south mainland has to offer  – we’ll definitely be back

What a superb little refuge from the hussle and bussle of a busy city life!

Shetland is stunning and Fia Cottage was a fantastic base from which to explore. Its is homely comfortable and warm. A perfect place to rest up and a welcome place to return to after a day out in this fabulous place

Christine and Tommy are perfect hosts – with busy lives themselves, but attentive and friendly and always available by phone should we need anything

They have put a lot of their personality into the cottage and what you get is a charming and extremely well equipped home from home

Book it while you can!

We have had a really lovely time at Fia Cottage

It was a pleasant surprise to be met by Christine and Tommy on our arrival at Fia Cottage.  The cottage is warm and welcoming, well equipped and maintained to a very high standard and the location is great for exploring the islands

The welcome basket, with a variety of Shetland produce was nice surprise

On days when you just feel like a walk, Quendale Bay is just a short distance away.  A big bonus is when you head out to the main road, a well stocked mini-market and garage is there

We cannot recommend Fia Cottage highly enough as a home from home

We’ve had a great time and the weather has been good – we have really enjoyed exploring the island.  Thank you so much for your kindness and hospitality xx
