The Decca was Shetlands Radio Navigational Signal Station. Which we purchased in 2002 and have over the space of 8 years converted into 8 delightful houses and apartments, suitable for visitors to Shetland, be it for work, rest or play! It is enclosed by a large garden area, with cream wooden fencing and has private parking. Each apartment has its own private entrance, and its own facilities.

From October - March, a car is recommended as there is no pavement or street lighting for the first 5 minutes walk, thereafter it is 15 mins to the nearest hotel, 20 minutes to the local supermarket, shops and restaurants.
