Nortower Lodges offer luxury accommodation on a working Shetland croft. The two newly built lodges, Boitan and Holsas, are located in the beautiful coastal area of Aithsetter, on the South Mainland of Shetland. From this peaceful setting, visitors can enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding area. There is an abundance of wildlife, flora and fauna right on the doorstep so any walk will be rewarded by the amazing sights and sounds of the islands.
