Location
The croft of 'Ure' is situated in the particularly scenic area of Eshaness, in the Northmavine area of Shetland approximately 15 miles north of Brae, and 40 miles from Lerwick. Eshaness is a particularly unspoilt area well known for its dramatic and rugged cliff scenery with great walks along the cliff tops by the lighthouse.

There is a summer cafe and campsite at Braewick about two miles from the house with other amenities being available at nearby Hillswick (approximately 6 miles) where there is a community owned licensed shop which also has a part-time post office branch and sells fuel, a health centre and hotel.

On the road back towards Lerwick at Urafirth is the area's primary school, there being another school and also another shop at Ollaberry. Brae, the main population centre for the North Mainland area, is the location of the area's High School, swimming pool & leisure centre, another health centre, a Co-op mini-supermarket, garage services and various additional social & recreational activities.

The House
The croft house comprises a kitchen, bedroom, shower room & porch on the ground floor, plus a living room and second bedroom on the first floor, all the main rooms having windows to the south. The exterior was renovated around 2001 including re-roofing and new double glazed windows and Velux roof lights. Since the current owners purchase about 14 years ago, they have since completely re-fitted the kitchen and upgraded the remainder of the interior.
