South Lighthouse, Fair Isle
  • Auld Haa Guest House
    Historic charm warms the Auld Haa originally built for the laird of the island in the year 1700. A gathering place that has shown hospitality to many travelers, notably Sir Walter Scott who visited here in 1814 interested in the Islands history and the Spanish Armada shipwreck, the El Gran Griffin of 1588. Close walk to the Museum, the South Harbor and the South Lighthouse built by Stevenson in 1892 all waiting to be explored. Make sure to find time to Golf the humble but challenging Fair Isle Lighthouse Keepers Golf Course as the Auld Haa is the place to rent clubs and get your Score cards. The Auld Haa has great views from the front garden, made even more amazing if you have the chance to see whales or a rare bird species. Keep a lookout for passing ships as Gannets plunge into the shimmering Sea.

    Two small but charming rooms with shared bath, access to the Dining room, Living room, Garden, SKY TV & Wireless Internet.

    We will pick you up at the plane or boat and take you back again.  Also we will give you a short tour of Fair Isle by car if needed.

    Friendly American family Tommy, Liz & Henry age 8 are happy to invite you into their home. Liz likes to make home made bread and cappuccino. Tommy is very creative in the kitchen with culinary inspirations from Asia, Europe and the Americas, we hope you like to eat the Auld Haa Chocolate Cake is legendary. When ever possible we serve vegetables from our own garden, fresh fish and local game. All guests are accommodated with likes & dislikes, allergies, ways of life. etc. Just make sure Tommy knows if you like Hot! or Not.
