Fethaland is known for its incredible scenery, and maritime and Viking history, and along with the other crofts would be ideal for someone looking to experience rural living in arguably one of the most beautiful places in the UK.

The location is also home to Scheduled Monuments that include a prehistoric home and a ‘haaf’ fishing station. There’s also evidence of carvings and bowls from Shetland’s Viking past.

This owner occupied registered croft extends to 98.2 hectares and forms the peninsula at the most northerly tip of mainland Shetland.

There is a track leading to the croft from the end of the public road, which is accessible with 4×4 vehicles.

It is one of Shetland’s most popular sites with both locals and tourists alike and although now uninhabited, Fethaland has a long history of human settlement, spanning from prehistoric times right up until the twentieth century, when the fishing station, established during the 15th and 16th centuries, became redundant.
