Lovely house run by friendly family excellent food. Quiet location in central location on mainland Shetland. Need to have car to get there but plenty of parking in grounds. Some lovely walking straight from front door or just admire the changing scenery from the main room in a comfortable chair

Room was clean and roomy and had a lovely view over the sea, breakfast room another fine view - being on a peninsula meant that the sea could be seen in three directions. Cooked breakfast was excellent, especially the eggs which were so fresh. Bread was available, plus a toaster so that no-one got burnt toast except those who wanted...

With my work, I travel throughout Scotland and have stayed in numerous B&B's. Of all of them, this was by far the best I've stayed in. The family who run it are absolutely lovely. Breakfast is excellent. The rooms are OK. The internet can be a little unreliable and mobile phone signal is pretty much non-existent (thanks to the island...

If you are looking for the warmest of welcomes in a beautiful house with breathtaking views, this is for you. A great breakfast with the bonus of eating eggs from Erica's own chickens-- what could be better?

This is an unusually (to my Glaswegian eye) designed and very large house where we were made most welcome for a few days' stay. Omaruru is easy to find as well. The house is in a great position for travels throughout the mainland and the southern islands. The breakfasts were very good. We packed our days with being outdoors and...

A friend and I have just returned from a week staying at Omaruru. Erica and Bryan and their delightful little dog Mobo made wonderful informative hosts who made us feel very welcome in their family home. The views from the dining room were stunning and the location perfect to explore the Islands. The beds were very comfortable and the peace...

Superb B&B with very friendly owners who have a good local knowledge of the area. Stunning views from the house and the B&B itself is a lovely environment to spend time in. Very peaceful and relaxing. Good central location to explore from and I would definitely make it my first choice if I visit The Shetlands again. Thanks for a...
