Saint Magnus Bay Hotel Hillswick

St Magnus Bay Hotel is housed in a wooden building, originally manufactured in Norway over 100 years ago and is thought to be the only one of its type in Britain. It offers wonderful views of the shoreline.

Here is our selection of hotels in Hillswick, a small village on the northern Shetland.

The village has an unusual history. In the 1700s it was developed as a fishing station by Thomas Gifford, the Laird of Busta. It's been said that the pebble beach you see today is artificial, which seems a remarkable undertaking if true. What is less debatable is that the beach was used to lay out fish for drying.

Overlooking the end of the beach is the gable of Da Böd  or "the Booth".The Booth forms one wing of the attractive Hillswick House, built in the late 1700s. The North Company(NorthLink Ferries) used Hillswick as the terminus of its Westside service from Scrabster near Thurso to Stromness in Orkney and Scalloway on Shetland. The company was successful in turning the village into a desirable resort destination.
