Skooty Allan is the Sheltand dialect term for the 'Arctic Skua'.

This apartment was part of the original ground floor workshop area when The Decca was a Radio Navigational Signal station. We converted the ground floor flats in 2005, making clever use of the space, to provide individual apartments, each with its own entrance.

The door opens into the open plan living area, which has wooden laminate flooring, in the seating area there are two Italian leather couches, television, DVD/VCR and Freeview. With rustic, solid wood dining table and chairs. There are plenty of Shetland Books, books, games etc. The kitchen, which opens off from the dining area is fully equipped, with all that you need.The bathroom is lined with high quality wet wall panelling, and there is a separate bath and shower. The bedrooms have quality carpeting and deep mattresses.
