Wonderfully simple and authentic croft house only improved by a charming and knowledgeable curator who entertained is with a song sung in Shetland dialect.
We were the only visitors when we arrived at the Croft and the guide ie the person working at the Croft - was excellent and really brought to life what Croft life was like throughout the year.

This is huge love in a small space: you cannot fail to to be awed by the skills on display and the reverence shown for the wonderfully talented makers and "making" history of the islands.
Excellent history of knitting on Shetland brought to life with local people who had interests in knitting and wool.

Excellent local museum, packed with lots of information and items about the history of Scalloway from geology, prehistory through fishing to the Shetland Bus during the war.
The bravery of the locals and Norwegian sailors who kept the Norwegian Resistance going, evading the German Navy, sailing in fishing boats and fast patrol craft, is a moving story and it's very well-told.
