WELCOME TO VOXTER OUTDOOR CENTRE
THE IDEAL BASE FOR YOUR GROUP ACCOMMODATION & EVENT IN SHETLAND.
Surrounded by farmland and rolling hills, a small dense wooded forest and a shallow inlet from the sea, Voxter House is an ideal spot for exploring the Shetland environment and for many outdoor activities.
Voxter Outdoor Centre was bequeathed to the Shetland people by its last owner Robbie Hughson. It had spent most of its life as a Church of Scotland Manse and glebe. It has been extensively refurbished and is now run by a voluntary committee who’s aim is to upkeep Voxter and ensure visitors and locals make the most of its potential as a base for exploring the natural surroundings and making the most of Shetlands culture and heritage.
This old Manse is nestled in the valley at Voxter, just to the North of Brae in Shetland, and has its own grounds.
Voxter Outdoor Centre can sleep up to 24 people. There are two 6-bed dormitories and one 8-bed dormitory on the 1st floor as well as two 2-bed rooms with en-suite showers and toilets.
