A visitor to Shetland looking from the Scord, would probably think that our village of Scalloway, with it’s prominent castle, was quietly asleep. A short tour around the harbour area and beyond would soon change that opinion.
The Castle is the most obvious attraction but there is also a new Museum, Chinese Takeaway, an art studio call THE BOOTH, two very busy grocery shops, a boatyard, two boat marinas, the North Atlantic Fisheries College, and more. Not as sleepy as was first thought.
Tucked away in Gibblestone road is a marvellous furniture workshop called PAPARWARK. Here, owner Cecil Tait and others, make traditional and designer furniture to customers specific requirements and finished to the highest standard.
The links will provide all the information required on the various businesses. The photos I have taken inside Paparwark are in my favourite close-up style of photography. Remember, don’t miss this great workshop as you travel through the village. Ring the bell if you’re on a bus!
I hope you enjoy the post and the photos.
