General Information
'Harpslie' is situated at Dunrossness in the South Mainland of Shetland, approximately 22 miles from Lerwick. Local amenities in the area are situated on the main Lerwick - Sumburgh road just over ½ mile from the house, where there is a mini-supermarket with post office & fuel pumps, and a small timber merchants / DIY store. Just across the road is the area's primary school, secondary pupils going to Sandwick or Lerwick, school transport being available, whilst the doctor's surgery for the South Mainland area is at Levenwick to the north. Regular Lerwick - Sumburgh bus services run along the main road.

The South Mainland of Shetland has much to offer particularly in terms of scenery and places of interest including the Loch of Spiggie RSPB Reserve, St Ninian's Isle and its stunning sand tombolo, archaeological sites at Old Scatness Broch & Jarlshof, and a second RSPB Reserve at Sumburgh Head. Sumburgh Airport and air transport to mainland Scotland is easily accessible.
