Da Milkshop

Available all year

Da Milk Shop is built on the site of the old milk shop where the ferry from Scalloway used drop off the village daily milk supplies and was once the source of the village daily news!  It was re-built in 2003 with an extended deck area to the front overlooking the marina.   It now provides quality self catering accommodation for visitors and their pets. 

Situated in the heart of the village it has wonderful views over the marina, Fugla Ness Lighthouse, Foula and the now uninhabited islands of Oxna, Papa and Hildasay.  There is a shop a minute away above the pier, regular bus services to Lerwick and Scalloway, a community hall which often hosts quiz nights and other entertainments. 

There are lovely walks all around including Meal Sands, a beautiful white sandy beach and more sandy beaches a short drive away at the south end of Burra.  Plenty of rugged coastline to cover – whether calm or wild, you will never tire of the views from your windows. It is an ideal base for exploring all over Shetland including the North Isles (Yell and Unst) which can be easily reached in a day. 

You can also enjoy staying in Da Milk Shop for shorter or longer stays during the winter at preferential rates – perfect for business or pleasure.  Please ask for more details.
