This unique building originates in 1904, when it was built as a convent for the Episcopalian church and known as the House of Charity. In the 1920s, the building became a rectory for Lerwick’s St Magnus Church and remained this way until 1969, when it became privately owned.

Glen Orchy House was taken over as a guest house in 1991, when it was carefully restored to create modern and welcoming accommodation whilst retaining the original style, features and character of the building.
