Very well kept and appointed conversion of the old Decca Radar post. An excellent base for Mainland Shetland, within easy reach of Lerwick, and accessible north and south. Plenty of space, and the Shetland winds ensure the on-site turbine keeps going! Local owner met us on arrival and departure, was available and pointed out some good sights / ameneties.

We booked this apartment on our last night in Shetland, if we only knew about these Apartments we would have booked here throughout our stay. The apartment is equiped with everything you need, internet is good and close to city center. You will find all information needed for activites and the like. On top of that They provide for you a racksack you can borrow during your stay with information on hiking routes. Would certainly stay here again

Stayed in Rain Gos for 6 nights and really enjoyed it. The flat was very well equipped, very clean and very comfortable. This flat suited us as it had 2 twin rooms and we were 4 friends travelling together. Would definitely recommend and definitely stay again if on Shetland.

Stayed here for one on business and was very cosy, lovely place finished to a very high standard, very comfy bed and all the mod cons. Would highly recommend. Lovely touch from landlord with a bottle of ale from the local brewery which is just outside and was very nice. Tesco is a 5min drive for all your needs.

We stayed in the Tirrick. A one bedroom apartment in the Decca self catering holiday homes. It is situated about 10 minutes drive from the town centre of Lerwick in the Shetland isles. It is fully equipped apartmentment suitable for long or short stays. It has everything you could need. Including dishwasher and washer/drier. Tv and DVD etc. A nice touch is the walkers pack. A rucksack with flask, map and binoculars etc. A nice view from the windows. The place is quiet and peaceful. If you're going out at night and font want to drive it's about £7 in a taxi. They are reliable also. Speak to The owners Steve and Gillian. They are always willing to advise and help. They have a great knowledge about what's happening in Shetland. I've stayed in The Decca a few times and will do do again. The Decca also has 2&3 bedroom accommodation. David & Margaret Glssgow
