COOGRIND SELF CATERING
1 Bedroom Self Catering Accommodation in Shetland
This luxury one bedroom self catering accommodation is situated on the ground floor of Coogrind.
Many visitors who arrive at Coogrind for the first time are amazed and found to be speechless when they set eyes on the mind blowing scenery. The decked seating area outside the front door is perfectly situated to sit and admire the scenery.
The open plan living/kitchen is fully equipped for a home from home holiday with a large flat screen television, internet access and a washing machine. The luxurious bathroom is large with a built in shower.
The bedroom has a super-king size luxury bed that is so comfortable you will not want to get up in the morning. The bed can be separated into twin beds if required. We have a cot, high chair and buggy should it be required.
Everyone has a different reason for visiting The Shetland Isles; it could simply be for the scenery, visiting friends, family or it could be for the wildlife, history architecture, music, walks or even the weather.
Believe it or not people have been known to visit for the weather. One day it can be a glorious sunny day and you could find yourself standing on one of our amazing white sand beaches, with seals popping their heads up out of, the turquoise blue sea, every now and then just to keep an eye on you and the next day it could be blowing a gale and once again you could find yourself standing on one of our amazing white sand beaches this time watching a wild sea at play.
Please contact me should you require anything else as I may have other items that could save you taking it with you.

Some of Britain's best preserved archaeology is here, at places like Jarlshof and Scatness, a reminder that the islands have seen 5000 years of habitation.

Virkie, Mainland, Shetland, ZE3 9JN

Superb sports facility with flumes, river ride, bubble pool, outdoor lagoon and 25 metre competition pool, plus fitness centre, squash courts and cafe
You could take a boat trip for a sea-level view of soaring cliffs, covered in nesting birds. Or walk to the hilltop on the Hermaness Reserve for a view of Muckle Flugga - the tip of Scotland. Or catch the ferry to the further-flung islands, to see the cliffs of Foula for instance. Finding an adventure in Shetland is easy - it’s an adventurous kind of place!
Fishing in Shetland
The Shetland Isles have an amazing variety of trout fishing and sea angling possibilities. There are clear, fertile machair lochs close to the sea, a vast number of sparkling lochs with feisty trout inland, and seas that provide awesome fishing
Good ferry links make inter-island cycling straightforward, while Shetland also has its part in the North Sea Cycle Route, which takes in 7 countries.
Wild seascapes, cliffs and beaches, archaeological sites and wildlife encounters - these are some of the rewards for walking in Shetland - and the islands even have their own walking festival. There are numerous routes if you are interested in geocaching. One can be found a short distance from our accomodation.
A memorable place to play golf, especially in mid-summer when the sun barely sets. There are three good courses.
Think of Shetland as Seabird Central. For sheer variety and number of seabirds Shetland is arguably the best place in Europe. Add the possibility of whale watching offshore, widespread otters and a culture that leans as much to Norway as it does to Scotland and you’ve the makings of a memorable island trip.
Shags, puffins and gannets
Whales and seabirds
Gannets and whimbrels
Heavy metal plants
Otters and divers
Isle of Foula
Lacework and knitting, paintings and jewellery, pottery and woodwork - these are just some of the themes to explore in the range of speciality shops on Shetland.
FROM OUR CUSTOMERS
I and my partner stayed at Coogrind for 2 weeks and found this place to be absolutely perfect and centrally located to reach all destinations easily around Shetland. The accommodation was very homely, warm and had plenty of hot water. The bed was extremely comfortable, the best we have ever slept in on holiday and the apartment had all the necessary equipment and accessories to make this a truly amazing place. The scenery from all the windows is fantastic and near a beautiful beach within walking distance.
