Harbour Street Apartment is located in ‘The House of David’ a prominent building, built in the early 1900’s as a dwelling house belonging to a watchmaker who ran a jewellery shop on Commercial Street. 

The corner location of our first floor apartment provides a great elevated vantage point from which to enjoy Lerwick’s annual Up Helly Aa procession, as well as benefiting from a sunny southerly and westerly aspect. The apartment is within a stone’s throw from the Viking Bus Station and around a 15 minute walk from the North Link Ferry Terminal.

A 5-minute walk will take you onto Commercial Street, Lerwick’s main shopping area and includes a host of cafes, restaurants, bars, banks, tourist office and gifts shops.  In the other direction, a 5 minute walk will take you to Mareel, our cinema and music venue and the Shetland Museum & Archives.  There are plenty of local grocers nearby and the supermarkets (Tesco & Co-op) are just a 5 minute drive away.

For families, the apartment overlooks the King George V play park with the Jubilee Flower Park also nearby.

The 2 bedroom apartment can comfortably sleep 5 people in two bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  Being new, the apartment is modern and tastefully furnished.

We cater for business travellers, holiday makers and families and have very much enjoyed welcoming guests since 2019.
