Old Haa, New Street, Scalloway
Category A Listed former laird's house of about 1750, now transformed into three town house apartments for long or short term letting. One of Shetland's finest haa houses. The armorial panel over the doorway commemorates the marriage of James Scott and Katherine Sinclair in 1750. On the buildings at risk register from 1990 it was vacant due to a legal dispute. Conversion to flats was started in 1995 but remained unoccupied and purchased by Scalloway Waterfront Trust in 2001. Restored externally in 2003 it remained unoccupied. Purchased by a private developer around 2006-2008 the interior renovation was completed in 2015.
