A Group with Lunna House, Folly, Former Schoolhouse, Gothick Cottage, Lunna Harbour, St Margaret?s Kirk, Steading, Walled Garden, and West Gates. The ground floor of this booth is divided into three chambers, the centre chamber extending back to the gable of the rear wing. The thick walls contain fireplaces in the E and W gables at 1st floor. The drying beach is partly man-made. Although currently (1996) a roofless ruin, this is one of the largest and best preserved of Shetland's fishing booths, and unusual in being T-plan in layout.
