Yell is linked to mainland Shetland by a regular ro-ro ferry service which operates from Ulsta to Toft on mainland Shetland (approximately 20 minute crossing), Toft being situated approximately 25 miles north of Lerwick, Shetland's main town. A ferry runs from Gutcher at the north end of Yell to the neighbouring island of Unst.

Yell is the largest of Shetland's outer isles with a population of around 950. There is plenty of wildlife to be seen, the island being well-known as one of the best places to see otters, and there are fine coastal walks and beautiful beaches particularly at Westsandwick & Breckon, and nature reserves at Lumbister and Yell Sound.

The property was built in the late 1980's. It is fully double glazed and benefits from central heating throughout provided by an oil-fired boiler in the large under-floor area where the 'Megaflo' water tank is also situated. An open fire in the sittingroom provides a cosy additional heat source, that room and the main bathroom having under-floor heating. There is a satellite TV connection to the sittingroom and ample telephone points.

When the house was built, it was constructed with a lintel to the south gable already in place so that access could be easily be provided to an extension at a later date if required, any alterations being subject to the necessary consents required.
