About Helen

Born in Shetland but living in Glasgow with my Husband (empty nesters!). Love visiting our holiday home and sharing this wonderful part of the world with others.

Helen purchased this house in 2014

Why Helen chose Toab

We custom built Da roost on a piece of land that my family had owned for generations. We can see my Uncle Jimmy's house up the road!

What makes this house unique

Da Roost is in a wonderful position overlooking the sea and coast. We are surrounded by greenery and wildlife but only a few minutes drive from Sumburgh Airport and attractions such as Jarlshoff. It's the prefect base for exploring one of the most amazing places in the world. The house has large windows to take in the coastline but is beautifully cozy on chilly Shetland nights with both underfloor heating and a traditional Shetland peat fire!

Da Roost - Family Luxury Holiday Home with Spectacular Sea Views near Sumburgh
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

A perfect location for a visit to Shetland

  • 5 of 5

6 friends from our car club journeyed to Shetland and traveled the wonderful roads to our destination at Virkie. Da Roost is the perfect place to have a relaxing special holiday.

All the facilities are 5 star, we were most impressed with the quality and cleanliness through-out the house. The photos don't really do it justice.

I will be recommending Da Roost to all my friends and hope to return again one day.
