Correct!

Scalloway is the largest settlement on the North Atlantic coast of Mainland, the largest island of the Shetland Islands, Scotland. It had a population of approximately 812, at the 2001 census. Until 1708 it was the capital of the Shetland Islands (now Lerwick, on the east coast of the Shetland Mainland).

Scalloway is the location of the North Atlantic Fisheries College (part of the University of the Highlands and Islands), which offers courses and supports research programmes in fisheries sciences, aquaculture, marine engineering and coastal management. It is also home to the Centre for Nordic Studies. Nearby are the Scalloway Islands, which derive their name from the town.

Coulport actually.
RNAD with Floating Dock.
I was there in 1970 on a H boat
We had 2 days of Tidal Stream Obs to do.
We were anchored  dropping tree poles off the stern
and taking speed and angles of flow as you do.
Captain decided to take some angles from the jetty
so went across in the Gemini.
Cold day so he has his survey hat on, Russian furry thing
Mod Plod rush across and Arrest him.
You can't make this sort of thing up.
Later he became an Admiral, Hydrographer of the Navy.
Also Ruler of the Preston Guild.
JAL Myers RN
Also Captain of Fawn with Charles POW under his wing.
