Fodor's Review

This waterfront fortress was built in 1600 by Patrick Stewart, earl of Orkney and Shetland. He was hanged in 1615 for his cruelty and misdeeds, and the castle was never used again. To enter, retrieve the key from the Scalloway Musuem. You may explore the ruins to your heart's content.
