“Immaculate, well situated and superbly furnished/fitted” Brekka lodge has everything you would find at home, and more. The kitchen was extremely well kitted out, everywhere was impressively clean and tidy, and the sight of oyster-catchers feeding on the lawn outside the window (plus you own 'personal' beach) made the location perfect for us.
“Truly home from home!” We have now stayed at The Decca 3 times - each time for a week and hope that our recent visit won't be our last. We have stayed in 3 of the appartments. The first time we stayed in Skarf, the second in Peerie Swaabie and the third in Grey Gos - all on the ground floor. We loved staying in all three. Steve and Gillian have thought of everything and make every effort to be eco-friendly. It is unusual to stay somewhere where I cannot think of anything that we need to take with us. The kitchens are very well equipped, the bathrooms are wetrooms and so suitable for disabled and beds are comfortable. The position of the The Decca is high on the hill and so has good views from the grounds. Being exposed, it is a bit blowy at times but that did not seem to be a problem! It is within a short drive of the town and a supermarket, but near roads to access the rest of the island/s. A car is essential unless you like steep hill walking! Whenever I have had a query, Steve and Gillian have been very quick to respond and most helpful.
“Hidden gems in both property and owners” Your every wish is catered for, Gillian and Steve are the most hospitable and accommodating hosts our party have had the pleasure to stay with, a real home from home experience. Along with the supreme standard of cleanliness they reall have tought of everything and the smallest of thoughtful touches do make all the difference. If you require a transfer to the accommodation, they will be there for you and your party. We were blown away with the fact that were hot water bottles, which were topped by the backpack in the hall as this held a map aswell as a flask, how fab.
“great location, nice and quiet and easy to get out & about” The property was in a good location for travelling around Shetland, and there was a rucksack available for use during your stay, which contained maps of the North and South mainland and the islands, which we found very useful. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Everything that you needed was available including diswasher, washing machine, DVD player,towels and t-towels, and there was easy parking at the property. There were also games and books available, and a welcome pack.
“Excellent accomodation with superb facilities.” It was an excellent stay with self catering shetland. Never expected so much for the money we paid. Warm welcome, clean atmosphere, really nice communication and very nearer to the city centre. It was a very good trip and you will really love the stay if you are planning to go shetland. Thank you very much Steve for coming down and having a chat before we left. Really appreciated and felt like as if we were at our home town.
“Great place to stay” I am a regulalr customer of Decca Station and I have stayed in most of the flats now and everyone of them is of a very high standard. Flats are clean, well equipped and comfortable. Great place to stay.
“We enjoyed the comfort, spaciousness & convenient location of 'C” Having stayed in quite a few self-catering flats over the years, I would put this one at the top for cleanliness & quality. Unlike some, it is better than the photos! It was spotless and everything was good quality, from the bedding to the leather lounger settees to the good water pressure. It is very thoughtfully appointed & everything worked. Gillian very kindly picked us up from the bus stop and even made us a fire when I asked about using it. It is very convenient to Lerwick town centre with a chemist & convenience store just yards away. We enjoyed walking down to the excellent museum, new Mareel art centre, Victoria Dock for a boat trip & the Up Helly a exhibition was about two blocks away. It is a ground floor flat & doesn't have amazing views, but that is perhaps its only drawback.
“Quality welcoming apartment for 2 in great location on outskirt” We were delighted with the luxury and welcome we received in the Tirrick apartment. I would recommend it to anyone who wants versatile accommodation in Lerwick.

About the Shetland Isles
This archipelago of over 100 islands is sparsely populated, with only 15 of the islands inhabited. From the mainland to Unst, Scotland’s northernmost inhabited island with its Viking heritage, Shetland actually lies closer to Scandinavia than Scotland. Even the dialect here has a Scandinavian lilt, and there are reminders of the region’s Viking roots around every corner.
What to Do
Head to Sumburgh Head RSPB Reserve, Shetland’s most easily-accessible seabird colony, where you can see birds such as razorbills and puffins in their natural habitat – you may even spot seals, if you’re lucky!
Because Shetland is closer to the North Pole than anywhere else in the UK, it’s the best place to see the Northern Lights between October and March.
Top Shetland Isles Travel Tips
Come here in January and you might catch the Up Helly Aa Festival, a series of fire festivals held in Lerwick on the last Tuesday in January each year, marking the end of the Yule season.

Voortrekker - Mogill Apartment
A little piece of paradise
This little studio apartment is set in the most wonderful of locations, with landscape views of the east coast of Shetland and only 10 minutes from the airport.
The apartment itself has all the amenites required for your stay, all you really need to provide for yourself is food. There is good wifi, and there is also good mobile signal (4G on both vodafone and EE). There is readily available parking at the property.
The owners are very welcoming and although i didnt converse with them much, they are on site if you have any issues. I would definitely recommend the property and would of course consider staying here again should i return in the future. …
Really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the island,Magnus is a lovely guy,we were lucky enough to meet his wife who is equally friendly.to stay here you really need to plan ahead,make sure you have plenty of food/drink for extra days incase you can’t leave when planned,you really are in the hands of the weather,towels and bedding tea coffee and cleaning products there but that is all,it’s no trouble taking stuff out there though,Magnus takes you from the boat to the cottage,you park at the little harbour of walls.£5.40 per person per crossing,such a bargain. …

Up Helly Aa fantastic
This apartment could not be any more central or comfortable. One of the best apts we’ve ever stayed in. Every comfort and need is catered for to a very high standard and owners Jenny & Billy couldn’t have been more helpful. Billy even carried our 2 heavy suitcases up the stairs. They left us a DVD of a previous Up Helly Aa to watch so that we understood more of what it’s all about. ***** accommodation n entertainment. …
