The Peerie (small in Shetland dialect) house is next door to The Lodge, set back slightly, with its private walled garden, but with the same magnificent views. The Former pump house to Leagraths greenhouses was converted into a house in the 1970s and has recently been updated and modernised. It sleeps two in one twin bedroom.
About the property:
The Peerie House is in a walled garden next to the Fetlar lodge with beautiful views over Tresta bay. It has a good-sized double bedroom with twin beds. The garden doors open from the sitting room, which looks out over the bay.
Fetlar lies South of Unst and to the East of Yell. These islands together make up the North Isles of Shetland. You can get to Fetlar Island by ferry or bus.
Bridget's Insider's Guide to Peerie House:
Fetlar Interpretive Centre: The centre is located at the Beach of Houbie opposite The Lodge/Peerie house. The Visit Scotland four-star community museum showcases the island's heritage and traditions, displaying its history, including that of the Leagarth estate and its beautiful gardens. It also provides information on available activities, including maps of the many walks and a list of birds and mammals spotted daily. Fetlar Interpretive Centre | Private House Stays
Tresta beach: Fetlar's award-winning, long white beach is one of the most stunning beaches in Shetland, with its spectacular cliffs and beautiful location. Tresta beach is easy to access and is perfect for families.
Hike to the end of Lambhoga: Since The Lodge overlooks the point of Lambhoga the hike to the end seems appropriate though it is one of the more challenging walks on the island. There is a track leading from the beach but it runs out about half way round and after that it does become harder work. However if you make it to the end you will be rewarded with wonderful views of Fetlar and in early summer you should see puffins nesting on the cliffs.
RSPB Mires of Funzie Reserve: The RSPB hide at the Mires of Funzie is a mire habitat where you can see various wading birds but, most importantly, the red-necked phalarope. Fetlar holds over half the breeding population in the British Isles.
Hike to the Natural arch at the Snap: Fetlar's coastline provides excellent hiking experiences, like the Snap walk, which takes you from Funzie southwest towards an area known as the Snap. Here you will see an array of seabirds, including fulmars, skuas and shags, and divers may be spotted on the lochs. Seals can also be seen on and off the rocks. This walk takes around 2 ½ hours.
