An excellent opportunity to purchase a rarely available ten acre parcel of croft land which sits in a pleasing rectangle with the ruins of the old crofters dwelling sitting centrally. The ruins of Anntown and the croft itself have stunning panoramic views over Bressay Sound and across to Lerwick.
Nestled in the peaceful crofting area of Kirkabister in the South of Bressay, with spectacular views Anntown is a truly special spot.
The Island of Bressay has a population of approximately 360 people. Bressay has a Post Office, grocery shop, hotel/restaurant, harbour, boating club, heritage centre and a Community Hall. The Local Development trust runs a cafe and shop from the old school building which also houses artists, knitters, toddler groups etc. The Bressay ferry runs regularly through the day, seven days a week. A seven minute crossing from the Island takes you right into the heart of Lerwick and so Bressay has the best of both worlds the peace, quiet, remote beauty and wildlife of Shetland with all the amenities of its thriving main town Lerwick so easily accessible.
Off the east coast of Bressay lies the uninhabited island of Noss. The Island is a National Nature Reserve and one of Europes finest wildlife sites. Famous for its seabird colonies, sightings of otters, seals, killer whales, Rissos Dolphin and Humpback whales are all possible as you walk the coast of Bressay.
