Shetland Camping BÖd Network
Shetland Camping BÖd Network, For info: Shetland Amenity Trust, Garthspool, Lerwick, Shetland, ZE1 0NY
The Shetland Camping Böd Network offers low cost accommodation in historic buildings throughout Shetland with fantastic scenery – giving the opportunity to tour these beautiful islands, staying in böds en route. Due to the böd’s historic nature, no two buildings are the same and facilities vary. The smallest böd sleeps four and the largest sixteen. Electricity, hot water and showers are available in some buildings and solid fuel stoves are provided in all. For the more adventurous traveller, one property has only an external cold tap for water supply! Each böd has a story to tell, for example Voe Sail Loft was once a knitwear workshop, where the jumpers for Sir Edmund Hillary’s expedition to reach the peak of Mount Everest in 1953 were produced. Some are in more populated areas than others, with facilities nearby. Choose your location dependent on how remote you want to be! Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. No pets allowed. Explore Shetland on a budget – bed down in a böd. For further info look at the Camping Bod website.This accommodation is featured on our map of Orkney and Shetland and here is its own website.
