Rural Retreat in Shetland Island with a Cute Little Character
We are a married couple who live with Molly the doggy on the Northern Scottish Island of Shetland at the southern tip. Having a 2 bedroom holiday cottage means you can stay there whilst looking after this adorable little dog.
Molly is a cute 4.5yr old little terrier who really enjoys life and human company, particularly as there is usually someone with her most of the time. Over the past 4 months she has developed occasional seizures for no apparent reason according to the vet. Therefore although this doesn't often happen we don't want her going into boarding kennels as her anxiety levels would be so raised. Just in case she does while we're away ideally we would like someone who has experience of dealing with a pet that has had a fit. However, if you can remain calm if a situation arose and keep her safe and sound whilst taking it in your stride we would like to hear from you....
The main dates required at this point are roughly Nov/Jan 2017 aprox 4-8wks and will be clarified in due course. Meanwhile we will try a 1-2wk break sometime between Aug/Sept to see how she gets on prior to this longer holiday we plan to go on. + More info
Our Home & Location
In return for looking after Molly you'll stay in our newly refurbished 2 bedroom holiday cottage located in a remote, quite and tranquil rural coastal village, away from the hustle and bustle of town life on the island of Shetland. This would suit folk who like nature, walks with inspiring land/seascapes for those interested in writing or arts & crafts it's 4 u. It is aprox 6 miles from Sumburgh airport, which has car hire facilities available. Alternatively 23 miles in Lerwick the main town is where the overnight Northlink ferry arrives from Aberdeen, Scotland you may wish to book your car with you. There is a small local convenience store 1.7miles that has a broad array of goods, otherwise all requirements can be found in Lerwick.
There is a lovely local beach aprox 1 mile on down the lane called Quendale Bay and others dotted around nearby....
