We are Open! We are Ready!
Find out how we are preparing for you, and how you can prepare for your visit to Shetland.
We have given personal attention to detail when we created our Self Catering accommodation in Lerwick, Shetland's main town, where our apartments are based in two different locations.
Whatever your reason for coming to Shetland, whether for business or holidays, or visiting family and friends, you will find that we can accommodate your needs with ease. Our visitors are important to us, and over the past 16 years we have listened to what they have said about their stay at Self Catering Shetland, and have tweaked and adapted our service accordingly.
'If we can arrange it, we will. If we are unable to arrange it, we will endeavour to find someone who can.'
Our Key Features are below.
The Decca is located on the edge of Lerwick and was Shetland's Radio Navigational Signal Station for 35 years until the early 1990's. In 2002 we bought the Station, which Steve has personally renovated, and in 2010 we completed our transformation project to create a perfect haven for the discerning visitor to Shetland.
The Decca is enclosed by cream wooden fencing, giving seclusion to the 12 space car park and large garden which surrounds the building, with picnic tables and benches for those 'Alfresco' moments – yes, even in Shetland!
The Decca is perfect for country stillness and town facilities. Being on the edge of the town it is in a rural setting, but just five minutes drive away from the heart of town. A 30 minute walk takes you to our fantastic new museum, passing by the Co-op supermarket, cafes and shops along the way. Ideal if you are looking for a rural feel, with easy access to our local pubs and restaurants at night.
Corbie is our town flat, on the ground floor of 63 Burgh Road. When it was built at the turn of the last century it was considered to be on the edge of town (borough/burgh), but now, it couldn't be more central.
