Luxury Self Catering Accommodation in the Shetland Isles
Welcome to LerwickSelfCatering.com, where you can learn about our two family-run self-catering flats in Lerwick, Shetland. Both properties were previously our family homes: as our families grew, we moved. In the case of 59 King Harald Street, Kenny & Violet moved upstairs!
In this site, we have tried to provide you with an insight to our accommodation and an overview of the things to do and the sites you can see during a stay in Shetland. If you have any questions at all, please do contact us and we'll do our best to help.
We hope you enjoy this site, and we look forward to seeing you in Shetland sometime soon.

Lerwick is a thriving town and the capital of Shetland. The name comes from the Norse ‘Leirvik’ meaning muddy bay. Lerwick is sheltered by the isle of Bressay to the east, providing an excellent natural harbour. It is a busy port with vessels of all sizes from oil related shipping to the fishing fleet, cruise ships, yachts and pleasure cruisers. If you decide to come to Shetland by ferry then you will arrive in Lerwick.
Both flats are located in central Lerwick with most amenities only a stroll away. The properties are highlighted on our Lerwick Attractions & Amenities Location Map. The two flats are marked with the following symbol:
