What Our Guests Say

Thank you for a wonderful cottage!  The kids had a ball and enjoyed painting the stones – what a great tradition!
Fia Cottage exceeded our expectations in every way and it was the little touches ie games for the children,  phone chargers,  the lovely welcome basket of food that were so lovely!  The cottage  was spotless and the wood burning stove was a bonus, as we have one the same at home.  The best thing about Fia Cottage was its homeliness – my granddaughters loved the lights in the bathroom and the “touch lights” in the bedrooms!  We had a great stay and will be back again

We had a wonderful,  two weeks at Fia Cottage – it was a very relaxing atmosphere.  Great weather and the cottage provided us with a great base for exploring and a comfy place to stay in for the few hours when it rained.   The cottage exceeded our expectations and it was so useful to have washer/dryer and airer.  It was good value for money!

Carrine & Steve - Rochdale, August 2018

Fia Cottage is a beautiful, homely, clean, well equipped cottage.  The owners, Christine & Tommy are very friendly people and a delight to know.  They have thought of everything you could possibly need to make any holiday complete.  Fia Cottage is a home from home and so lovely to come back to after a day of exploring!  The neighbours are also very friendly people and are willing to give advice if needed, on places of interest, which is a great help.  Overall, we fully recommend Fia Cottage – that’s why we keep coming back from the other side of the world!

Thank you Christine & Tommy!!

Kathy & Mike, New Zealand, July 2018

Fia Cottage is an absolute gem!!  We were met by Christine who was a warm and inviting hostess  able to show us how everything worked and answer any questions.   The cottage itself is beautifully appointed, immaculately clean, with modern decor and superbly equipped (not only that, but we were met with an excellent “welcome basket” with essentials and treats to get us through the first day).   To top it all, we found it to be excellent value.  Cant praise the cottage enough and needless to say, I wouldn’t hesitate in staying there again! Many thanks for our stay in the wonderful Fia Cottage!   We hope these couple of things will be of use.   Best wishes Joan, Eddie and Derek

(This part of the comment is from us to thank Joan, Eddie & Derek for leaving  some lovely gifts on their departure.  Joan also painted  four beautiful stones to add to our collection very generous guests indeed!)

Joan, Eddie & Derek, Devon - July 2018

The main reason we chose Fia Cottage for our stay in Shetland was because you had both experienced renting in the UK and had first hand knowledge of what your guest should expect.  We had no problems finding the cottage by following your directions and it fully exceeded our expectations.  Everything was perfect and good value for money!  Thank you for a wonderful week in Fia Cottage – we have enjoyed every second!  We had pleasant summer weather all week and visited all the Viking and Neolithic sites there are.  We now continue our holiday for one more week in Orkney for further exploring into the viking heritage

Erene & Kjetil, Norway - June 2018

We had a lovely time in your beautiful and charming cottage and we loved the proximity of our favourite beaches.  The cottage is cosy, very well equipped and has a south facing aspect so when the sun shines it is glorious.  The location – walking distance of fabulous beaches.  As bird watchers, having a dozen or so ravens roosting on your neighbour’s barn was a dream come true.  We will definitely come back and recommend

Liz & Brian, Scotland - June 2018

We’ve been at Fia Cottage before and loved it so much – it’s so clean and beautiful .  It’s the perfect place, my heaven on earth and excellent value for money which makes a longer stay possible.    We love the welcome hamper. Fantastic neighbours next door too!  It’s bright, beautifully situated, lovely garden area with drying green, super outlook from upstairs to the lighthouse, lovely bedding & towels, fantastic shower – what’s not to like?  Thanks Christine & Tommy once again for the amazing cottage!  We’re already looking at the calendar for next year

Liz & Dunc, Scotland - June 2018

It was lovely to be welcomed personally with explanations about where and how in the cottage, the information booklet, the basket with eggs, chocolates etc were excellent

Although we were placed in the cottage as part of a visit organised through Shetland Wildlife,  Fia Cottage was very well organised, clean, beautiful, very comfortable and a great place to spend a cold winter evening – loved it!

I cannot recommend Fia Cottage highly enough.  Christine was incredibly welcoming and the cottage did not want for anything.  The basket of food was very welcome!    Our resident chef specifically told me to pass on to you that he’d never stayed at a self-catering cottage in 70 years that came with everything we needed – the cottage far exceeded our expectations, and I would not hesitate to stay there again.  The housekeeping was immaculate and the cottage itself was probably the highlight of our stay on Shetland!

David & Birdwatchers, Essex - October 2017

Fia cottage was lovely and felt like a home from home. It was so well equipped – you really have thought of everything! The welcome goodies were much appreciated too. We did lots of exploring and it was nice to return to such a comfortable cottage at the end of every day. It was our first visit to Shetland and we hope to return. We would happily return to Fia Cottage and recommend it to friends. Janis was lovely and very helpful
