Covering a huge area of nearly three acres, this property offers an extraordinary opportunity to buy somewhere so remote that no one has lived there for nearly 80 years.

Located in the Shetland Isles, the land for sale is made up of five parts – four crofts (small-scale farms) and a house. There is the main Fethaland croft at the northern tip of the Shetland mainland, a four-bedroom family home in the village of North Roe and three smaller farms. These are tenanted and called Hooplees, Largarth and Houllsquoy.

Fethaland has stunning scenery and an interesting maritime and Viking history. It also includes the old 15th century fishing station which was abandoned in 1906.

Walkers and wildlife enthusiasts will appreciate the idyllic location, where it is common to spot killer whales, puffins and ospreys.

Fethaland was last inhabited in 1944 before owner David Murray's father moved to North Roe. It can only be reached by foot or with a suitable off-road vehicle. The public road does not go this far north, meaning the purchase offers the chance to live in a , away from the hubbub of general life.
