Unbelievably, we are into year 10 of owning the chalets. In the past decade we’ve learned so much about running a business, and hope that everything we’re learning has helped to create a welcoming and enjoyable stay for our guests.
We continuously improve on what we offer visitors, and we try to do this at as little extra cost to our customers as possible.
Some improvements are more exciting than others: the next upgrade is to our nine outside doors. They may not be the most interesting feature of our chalets, but with the strong winds and wild weather we get in Shetland they certainly are important!
The existing ones have certainly done their time and are looking a bit tired. After months of trying to identify a supplier who offers exterior doors suitable for Shetland weather, I finally found one! Howdens, who have a super fast service and are great value.
The doors have arrived and are unfinished, so we’ve had a busy two weeks of non stop painting, ready for the joiners to arrive and hang them before adding new handles and locks, in time for our next lot of visitors. I think they will look really great and hopefully, it’ll be at least another ten years until they have to be replaced.
