Laird's manse, Yell, Shetland

This is The Haa. Aside from the absolutely fabulous house name, it's in a place called Gloup, on Yell. Shetland SO does names!
The Haa is a gorgeous, faded Grade B listed former laird's home in a lovely location on the largest of the North Isles.

The Haa has had it's price reduced - to offers around £100k. Mad!
Here's some pictures:

I noticed the labels - marked for sale or auction perhaps? The price includes carpets and curtains and some of the furniture is also for sale.
There are signs of damp in some rooms and the house only has single-glazed windows and storage heaters. But the original doors, window shutters and other details are lovely.
Downstairs is the hall (with a bathroom off it), two reception rooms, study, kitchen and two walk-in stores/utility.
The first floor has two grand bedrooms with a second, shared bathroom. The large attic has a third bedroom (fitted out with cute box beds) and a second space used for storage.
Outside is an overgrown garden and parking area.
It's on the market through agents Neil Risk, details here.
