Attractive Sights from Special Sites
The Hurdiback Hostel on Papa Stour, to the west of the Shetland Mainland, is an idyllic place. It caters for the needs of both the active and inactive because it is on an away-from-it-all island of abundant wildlife, including the appealing puffin. The self-catering hostel is sited on a working croft of 180 acres, within easy distance of 22 miles of coastline adjacent to Marine Conservation Areas. It is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The estblishment is well-run, warm and reasonably-priced, even offering a remarkably attractive rate for senior citizens. Take a look at the Hurdiback Hostel to engage your island-enthusiasms.
