Scalloway Castle is a tower house in Scalloway, on the Sheltand Mainland.
The tower was built in 1600 by Patrick Stewart, 2nd Earl of Orkney, during his brief period as effective ruler of Shetland.
Scalloway Castle is built on an L-plan, with a main tower of 18 by 10 metres (59 by 33 ft), and a wing to the south-west of 8 metres (26 ft) square. The now roofless castle is 4 storeys, with an additional garret over the main tower. The ground level is tunnel-vaulted, containing kitchens, stores and a well.
