Old Haa


Burravoe, Yell, Shetland Islands, ZE2 9AY

    17th century lairds house with local/natural history displays, art gallery, tearoom, craft shop and garden.

    Open late April - Sept, gardens always open, free admission (donations welcome)

    Yell is the stepping stone island to Unst and Fetlar and is also home of the Old Haa Museum. Here, the history of the island, including the whaling years and shipwrecks are summarised along with natural history, genealogy and a picture and sound archive.

    However, there is much more to the Old Haa than a museum - it is a building the community identifies with. The Old Haa has a tearoom with freshly made homebakes, a gallery, with regular displays of local art and a craft shop with locally crafted souvenirs, knitwear and commercial recordings produced in the Old Haa.

    The Old Haa also has a large picnic garden for the ‘fine days’ with geological figures known as Inuksuits, made of Yell rocks. The Old Haa is inviting and homely, offering visitors detailed displays of heritage along with a warm welcome.
