A perfect location for a visit to Shetland

  • 5 of 5

6 friends from our car club journeyed to Shetland and traveled the wonderful roads to our destination at Virkie. Da Roost is the perfect place to have a relaxing special holiday.

All the facilities are 5 star, we were most impressed with the quality and cleanliness through-out the house. The photos don't really do it justice.

I will be recommending Da Roost to all my friends and hope to return again one day.
