Belmont House
A magical venue for holidays and events

Belmont House is a classical Georgian house in Unst, Shetland, providing the perfect venue for self-catering holidays, weddings, honeymoons and events. Located on the UK’s mort northerly island, this stylish and immaculately restored house boasts accommodation that sleeps up to 12, and an ideal base for exploring Unst, Yell, Fetlar, and the rest of Shetland.

Built in 1775 by Thomas Mouat and immaculately restored, this elegant house is situated in beautiful grounds. Relax in the lush green gardens and listen to birds, while the waves roll in and out on the beach below. It’s one of the most peaceful places imaginable.

The house itself provides fully equipped self-catering accommodation with five bedrooms and plenty of other communal rooms to relax in.

Make the most of the magnificent first floor drawing room or be inspired in Mouat’s writing room with its Venetian windows looking over the sea to Yell. Cook a feast in the fully equipped kitchen or explore the pavilions in the landscaped gardens – all after a day exploring the majestic scenery, wildlife and Viking heritage on your doorstep.

Come to Stay at Belmont House

Belmont House is a community asset, owned by the Belmont Trust which raised the funds to save and restore the house from ruin. The property is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees, and supported by our volunteer Garden group who help with the upkeep of the gardens which are open to the community year-round. As a registered charity, all profits are reinvested into the house. Without guests and the support of the community, Belmont cannot survive - especially as running costs are high, with regular maintenance required to preserve the building against the severe northern climate. So, by staying at Belmont House, you are directly helping preserve this wonderful historic property for future generations to enjoy.

Rated 5 star ‘Excellent’ on Trip Advisor and 4 star by the National Trust for Scotland Holidays, Belmont House truly is the ideal venue for groups of family and friends, looking for accommodation in Unst. It’s calming, tranquil and immersed in nature.

Rates are from just £25 per person per night (based on a short break with 10 sharing - and please remember that it is a self-catering venue not a Bed and Breakfast establishment), so why not head north and discover all that Belmont has to offer. Please book directly with us as it also saves money on commission fees that are better spent directly on the house.
