Drumquin is a former Victorian Schoolhouse which has been extensively refurbished to provide guests with modern and cosy accommodation, as well as high quality dining.
We have 8 guest rooms and provide single, double & family/twin accommodation. Our rooms are designed to ensure you have a comfortable stay which is why we include Sky TV, free Wi-Fi and tea/coffee making facilities in all rooms. All our rooms include en-suite facilities.
For those that want, we also have a lovely lounge area where guests can sit by the rayburn and enjoy a nightcap. We provide a continental breakfast buffet every morning and have a selection of hot food cooked to order. Guests can enjoy their meals in our dining room which boasts fantastic views across the voe toward Busta. On nicer summer days, guests can also access the garden area.
The Guest House is located in Brae, in the parish of Delting. Brae is approximately a 30 minute drive from Lerwick (where the ferry arrives) and 60 minutes from Sumburgh airport. Being one of the largest villages in Shetland, Brae is serviced regularly by public transport making it easily accessible. However, to explore the treasures of Shetland we would recommend hiring a car as public transport cannot reach some of the stunning areas we would suggest you visit including the cliffs at Eshaness.
We have a good sized car park for our guests.
Drumquin is near to many amenities including shops, leisure centre and swimming pool, marina and pubs.
Built in 1880 as the local Village School and Schoolhouse. The car park was originally the playground. It closed it's doors in the early 1970s after a new, larger School was built in Brae. It lay empty for a few years before being bought and turned into a Family Home in the early 1980s. In the early 1990s it was refurbished and turned into a Guest House and named Drumquin Guest House by one of the new owners who was from Ireland and had connections with the small village of Drumquin in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. The name has carried on through to us, Robert and Leslie, the current owners.
We took over the Guest House in December 2010. Where we continued to offer a Bed and Breakfast service and developed the business further to offer lunches and evening meals to local folk in Shetland. Since then we have expanded into catering for outside events, including Weddings.
Robert & Leslie are fantastic!
They provided the catering for 220 people at our wedding meal & it was absolutely outstanding. Their attention to detail and organisation made us feel confident that it would all go to plan with such a large number to cater for. Our meetings with them were laidback and never without laughing!
The food was indescribable, particularly the ‘showstopper’ pudding of meringue! It all tasted incredible, everyone was raving about it.
We cannot thank them enough for the amazing job they did. 100% recommend them for any function.
