where is the Doosh?
Added by Geofflinnitt on 14 January 2008
The Doosh is a Dovecot and saltwater shower at the entrance to Elwick Bay Shapinsay.

The Douche, also known as the Dishan Tower, was apparently built in the 1600s as a doocot. It was converted to a salt water shower about the time of the completion of Balfour Castle in 1848.
