We had a very nice stay in the comfort and great facilities of Skooty Allan. The two bed apartment had everything we hoped for and much more besides. The owners seem to have thought of everything for their guests and we were very glad we decided to stay there. The booking process was very easy and straightforward as was check... More

The property offered by Self Catering Shetland is actually four semi-attached houses called The Decca. We rented the Grey Gos flat, which has a double bedroom downstairs and 2 twin bedrooms upstairs. There is a bathroom downstairs with a "shower room" type shower separate from the full-sized bathtub, then a bathroom upstairs with a shower, no tub, but both well... More

We stayed in Peerie Swaabie - a ground floor apartment, with 2 double bedrooms and wet room. The apartment was warm and comfortable and extremely well equipped with everything we needed. We found the books and information provided very helpful, as first time visitors to the island and also really appreciated the welcome pack.

Have stayed at the Decca in the past but first time in the Peerie Swaabie. This was a ground floor apartment. Two bed rooms with double beds. Wet room with shower was great. Free internet as well. As usual, tea, coffee, sugar, milk all supplied. Also various other food items. Can't beat this for value.

Hi David, Thank you for your kind review - we are glad that Peerie Swaabie was okay for you - it is one of our 3 star apartments, as opposed to your usual one bedroom 4 star apartment. We enjoy having you to stay - and look forward to seeing you all again later in the year :-) More

Stayed in the Tirrick apartment for a week while my partner was working on the island and can thoroughy recommend this accommodation for anyone visiting Shetland. It was reasonably priced, very clean, modern and comfortable.

The apartment we stayed in was lovely, and more than what we expected for the cheap price. The bed was lovely and big, the bathroom was nice and the living room/kitchen was beautiful. The fridge had the basics in it as well, which was such a nice touch. They also left us a bottle of Shetland Beer. The owners are... More

9 of us stayed at the Decca taking over 3 of the apartments. Our hosts Gillian and Steve were absolutely brilliant, and the apartments were excellent, very well equipped and a sweet and unusual touch of a soft toy on each bed. The Decca is based just outside of Lerwick, but directly opposite a small friendly brewery which does free... More

Absolutely wonderful! After one night of camping we were 'washed out' I called Self Catering Shetland and had the kindest response and we were warm and cosy in the beautiful Tystie apartment that night. Every detail was of the highest standard with very warm homely touches. Would absolutely come back and recommend to all. Thank you very much!
