Skarf is the Shetland dialect term for the bird known as the 'Shag' in English.

Skarf was Self Catering Shetland's first house in The Decca to be opened, in April 2003.

This attractive 2 storey accommodation on the outskirts of Lerwick is part of The Decca, which is situated in peaceful countryside and yet is just five minutes from Lerwick town centre by car, 20 – 30 minutes walk to the supermarket and museum respectively. Take the hill road, with its panoramic view of Lerwick and Breiwick Bay and you are at The Clickimin leisure centre within 20 minutes, and at the South End of Lerwick where you will find the Clickimin Broch in 25 minutes.
