Shetland Amenity Trust constantly strives to preserve and enhance everything that is distinctive about Shetland's cultural and natural heritage, promoting access to it whether physical or intellectual.
The Trust was created in 1983 and has since delivered an extensive range of high quality heritage and culture projects, in partnership with a range of local, national and international agencies.
We continue to be pro-active in seeking new opportunities and identifying new funding sources, to further enhance the heritage and culture experience for local Shetland people and visitors to our islands.
We are part of a community which takes great pride and pleasure in our cultural and natural heritage, embracing traditions, dialect and our physical environment in all of our activities.
Our self-catering accommodation offers a rare opportunity to stay in a historical and spectacularly situated lighthouse, with breathtaking panoramic sea views, a dramatic coastline and stunning sea birds all metres away. It’s the perfect place for a staycation – a truly unique holiday away from it all.
