Situated on a site extending to approx. 0.33 acres, the property is entered via the main shop doorway to a large retail area with glazed window display. To the side is a further retail space which includes a partitioned former Post Office unit in one corner. At the rear of the main space is a further retail / storage area with office and store to the side, and further store leading through to a staff area with kitchenette & toilet.

The property is situated across the road from the pier and beach in the centre of the village of Mid Yell on Yell, the larger of Shetland’s North Isles, the village being Yell's main population centre and the location for its main amenities including the Junior High School, leisure centre & swimming pool, medical & care centres.

Yell is approximately 19 miles long by 7.5 miles wide and having a population of around 1,000, and is connected to Mainland Shetland by a regular ferry service.

Despite the remote ‘get-away-from-it-all’ location, the mainland is still easily accessible with a daily ferry service linking Shetland with Orkney & Aberdeen, and regular flights to Aberdeen, Glasgow & Edinburgh.
