My wife and I are very picky with B&Bs. We booked Castle Gardens as a one-day booking after noticing we had a "hole" in our schedule. I wish our hole was bigger, this was a marvellous experience. The room was very clean, large and comfortable....More

Date of stay: September 2018

About the neighbourhood
The village of Scalloway has the following places to eat:
Scalloway Hotel
The Cornerstone
Da Kiln
Da Haaf Restaurant

All highly recommended.
Getting around
We have a good bus service between Scalloway and the main town of Lerwick (every 1/2 hour). To travel by bus to anywhere else within the islands is also possible with all services leaving from Lerwick.

My personal recommendation would be to have a hire car - these are available at the Ferry Terminal and at Sumburgh Airport (prior booking advised).

Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Sumburgh : 29.0 km
Ferry: Holmsgarth Terminal - Lerwick: 8.0 km
Sumburgh Airport = 35 minute drive / 26 miles
Ferry Terminal - Holmsgarth - Lerwick = 10 minute drive / 6 miles

As you approach Scalloway, at the tiny roundabout, veer to the left towards the Castle, we are the FIRST house on the left after the open fields - if you get to the Castle - you've gone too far!
Activities nearby
Nearest Beach: 16.0 km.
