A great place to bring the kids. Lots of exploring to do on the beach, board games in the house and a TV when the scenery fails to impress. Teenagers could be more difficult to satisfy…

The bunk room is fun for children (or adults good at sharing) and each bunk has its own reading light. The top bunk has a handy shelf for books or toys and view through the skylight.

A high-chair is provided for toddlers but please bring your own cot for babies.

The house is all on one level except a low step into each bedroom. One step up into the house with a raised threshold.

Unfortunately doorways are not wide enough for wheelchairs.

The top bunk bed is suitable for able-bodied adults or children over the age of seven.

Parking is just a few metres from the door.

Dogs are welcome by arrangement, at no extra cost, and must be kept under your control at all times.

Please always clean up after your dogs and keep them off the furniture.

Reawick is a crofting area with lambing in late spring and sheep-grazing all year round. We cannot guarantee our fences or anyone else’s will be dog-proof. Not only that, but rabbits are prolific (there are no foxes in Shetland) and it is not unknown for a dog to chase a rabbit straight over a cliff.

In our own fairly stressful experience, if your dog is not safe in the proximity of sheep or rabbits, we strongly advise not bringing it.
