  • Had a great few days here. Lodge very nice and comfortable. Enjoyed the scenery and views from the lodge and out and about. Even the weather was kind to us. Thanks to Kenneth & Hazel for a very warm welcome.

  • A wonderful stay at Holsas with beautiful weather & very warm for September. The cabin is well equipped & very cosy. Thank you for the eggs, milk, cucumber & peas. We have been lucky enough to see 2 Otters & also a Minke whale. Have visited the Out Skerries & also flew to Fair Isle, both were unforgettable experiences & will be etched in our memories forever. Walked to the Catalina crash site on Yell and also Hermaness on Unst where we overlooked Muckle Flugga. We love Shetland & will be back. Thank you.

    Chris & Nicola – 05th to 12th September 2016

  • Lovely home from home again, we stayed next door 3 years ago and it did not fail to come up to expectation again. We managed to see more of Shetland this time, all the way to Unst and Northmavine. Although Orca’s had been seen up and down the coast we missed them, but there was so much more to see. Better luck next time.

    Linda & John Loveder – 3rd to 10th September 2016

  • Very many thanks to Hazel & Kenneth for a lovely welcome to the Shetland Isles. It is truly a wonderful place to visit with very friendly people. I dare say it is not without it’s challenges but mostly they have been overcome. The lodge is absolutely perfect with every need catered for. We will certainly be back.

    Sandy & Madeleine Tulloch, Banchory – 03rd to 05th September 2016

  • How lovely to be back again – albeit not long enough! Your lodge is almost too comfortable! We did manage to leave it and see more of these beautiful islands, we even made it to Unst and Northmavine and Eshaness. Thank you for looking after us so well – lovely fresh eggs, thank you. We will miss you all so much, but hopefully will return next year to see the new Farm Shop – a great idea and hopefully spend more time here. Take care and many thanks again. Come and visit us soon.

    Andrew & Jo Laurie Pile, Herts – 26th August to 01st September 2016

  • Lovely, spacious and well equipped lodge, providing everything we needed for an enjoyable week. Nursing a broken ankle, it was wonderful to have a beautiful view to relax and enjoy. Our grandchildren loved the playhouse and all the toys – what a lovely touch. Thank you so much for everything.

    Rose & Roger Tuthill, Beccles, Suffolk. Charis Bayfield, Benhall, Saxmundham, Suffolk. Paula & Alagna Saxelby, Cunningsburgh, Shetland – 19th to 26th August 2016

  • As somebody else has written “a very comfy stay”. Thanks for this lodge, so well equipped. We really enjoyed. Probably we will come back. 6 days not enough.

    Silenzio – Silence Natura – Nature Rispetto – Respect This what I will bring back home with me from here.

    Aronne & Silvia, Bergamo, Italy – 13th to 19th August 2016

  • We have spent a wonderful week in your lodge! It is very comfortable and well located. We have discovered the Cunningsburgh Show, appreciated it’s ambiance and its numerous contents! Our stay has been rich in discoveries and we were well welcomed everywhere on your Islands! Despite some windy and rainy days, the weather was nice. We bring back home so many beautiful pictures: birds and landscapes. We will keep a very good memory of the Shetlands and, maybe, we will be back some day. Thanks a lot! Thanks very much for the eggs and raspberries.

    Gilles, Sylvia, Lucie, Mathilde & Lio Florentine, France – 06th to 12th August 2016

  • Glad we booked Holsas Lodge at the last minute. Turned out to be perfect for us and the bairns enjoyed the play barn. Will keep you in mind for future. Thank you!

    The Ramsays, Edinburgh – 01st to 06th August 2016

  • A beautiful location and superbly equipped & cosy cabin. We have very much enjoyed our stay and will be recommending Nortower Lodges. Thank you.

    Esther Wright & Ben Bruce, Glasgow – 27th to 31st July 2016

  • What a beautiful spot you have here. We have had a truly wonderful stay in your Lodge. Everything has been great. We have really enjoyed exploring the island from here. Our children have loved watching the wildlife and exploring Shetland’s great outdoors. We’ll be back!

    The Westall Family, Doha, Qatar – 23rd to 27th July 2016

    Bernard, Finessa & Patricia – Italy & France – 16th to 20th July 2016

  • Thank you for making this a perfect place to stay. Very comfortable & clean. Shetland is a great place to explore, just a shame about the weather. Will be back as close to family. Thank you.

    Morag, David, Fraser, Murray & Isabelle McLaughlin, Aberdeenshire – 13th to 20th July 2016

  • Hazel & Kenneth. Thank you for the friendly welcome on our arrival, for fresh produce in the fridge and your very comfortable lodge. We have enjoyed the wonderful scenery, flowers and birds (where else would you find three Curlew chicks with their parents in your front garden or have to wait leaving the house to allow ringed plover chicks to walk past?) The local residents were all friendly and cheery and acknowledged ‘passing places’ on single track roads. Shetland has always been on the bucket list and its been well worth the wait. Thanks.

    Maisie, Rosemary & George Lockerbie, Scotland – 9th to 16th July 2016

  • Thank you for making this the perfect place to stay. We have loved our visit . The play barn for Orla was the perfect touch. I am sure that we will return.
