General Information

'Westhaven' is situated in the small hamlet of Huxter overlooking the Loch of Huxter at the south east corner of the island of Whalsay, just under two miles from the ferry terminal at Symbister, the main settlement on the island and the location of all the main amenities.

Situated off the east coast of mainland Shetland, Whalsay, which measures around 5 miles long by 2 miles wide and has a population of around 1,000, is often referred to as 'the Bonnie Isle'. The island has some magnificent scenery and the Ward of Clett, the highest point provides superb views of the east coast of Shetland.

A 30 minute ro-ro ferry service which runs throughout the day to Laxo / Vidlin, about 20 miles from Lerwick, links the island with mainland Shetland.

Although offering a quieter outer isles location, the island has an excellent range of amenities which are centered around Symbister and include a school, two general stores and a post office, a doctor's surgery & care centre.

There are excellent sporting facilities including a superb leisure centre with heated swimming pool, games hall, fitness suite, squash court & all weather sports field, and Skaw at the north end of the island is home to Britain's most northerly 18 hole golf course. Symbister also has a marina and boating club and is home to several of Shetland's biggest fishing boats.
