Shetland Heritage Accommodation

Shetland Amenity Trust offers two types of heritage holiday accommodation throughout Shetland.  The Camping Böd Network and Lighthouse Holiday properties have all been selected for their historical value and connections with the local areas.

Nesbister Camping Böd Nesbister Camping Böd Zoom The sixteen properties are owned by Shetland Amenity Trust and are maintained by the Architectural Heritage Team, who have also been responsible for restoring several of the buildings.

There are nine Camping Böds throughout Shetland, located from Sumburgh in the south mainland, to the northern isles of Yell and Fetlar.  The network provides low cost accommodation in spectacular settings and truly unique buildings.  Facilities are basic, and whilst some properties have hot water and showers, some do not even have electricity.
