Statement of Special Interest
A Group with Lunna House, Fishing Booth, Folly, Former Schoolhouse, Lunna Harbour, St Margaret's Kirk, Steading, Walled Garden, and West Gates. The small rooms suggest this building simply functioned as a cottage but was sited on axis with Lunna House and the folly so that its NW gable would perhaps give the appearance of a small chapel. Forming a focus beyond the west gates and an ancient religious site, this building is an essential part of Shetland's best historic designed landscape.
