We spent a week at Fia Cottage in May & it has given us many happy memories. We can’t thank you enough for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cottage! It certainly is a ‘home from home’ with everything in it that you could wish for. The location was excellent for sightseeing, walking and seeing the wildlife. One of our favourite walks & scenery was St. Ninians Isle. Hoping to return some day and we would have no hesitation in recommending Fia Cottage to anyone visiting Shetland as it is certainly a first class place to stay!
We enjoyed our stay at Fia Cottage very much, We chose Fia Cottage because it was so close to Sumburgh Head and reachable by bus and the cottage looked very nice and perfectly placed. The cottage had everything we needed and more and it exceeded the expectations we had before our arrival. We loved the very comfortable Kitchen-Livingroom area, with the big windows and there was nothing at all that we didn’t like. Very comfortable and clean house, with everything you might need and a perfect place to stay for exploring the south of Shetland. Beautiful walks and scenery all around, lovely beach and impressive lighthouse. We had a very warm welcome by Christine and Tommy, who are very helpful. Thank you!
Directions to the Fia Cottage were easy to follow and the cottage itself was lovely and clean with easy to control heating system. We felt we received good value for money. We loved the open plan down stairs, also being able to sit round the table to eat meals as a family. We would like to thank you so much for the use of your lovely cottage, for going out your way to provide us with extra baby items so we could pack that little bit lighter – we will definitely be back again soon in the future. We enjoyed painting the rocks for you and hope they make a great addition to your collection at Fia Cottage.
Many thanks – Hayley Buchanan, Harry Leybourne, Skye, Stephen and baby Pandora
Just returned to Melbourne, Australia, from Shetland. Fia Cottage is a gorgeous cottage set in a lovely remote position, not too far south of Lerwick, and hostess, Christine, is a delightfully friendly lady. There are so many great places to visit, walks to go on and fabulous beaches near Fia Cottage. I loved the place and want to return!
Gorgeous, beautiful, cosy cottage in a great location!
We stayed at three different houses on our trip to Shetland, and I can honestly say we left the best until last!
Fia cottage is perfect and has to be the most well equipped holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. A wonderful welcome basket and the means to paint a stone are particularly nice touches. Thank you for the perfect finish to our stay on Shetland
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!
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!!
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!)
