Bayanne House

Yell ZE2 9DG

Bayanne House was originally at the centre of a small estate created in the late 18th century by the Hoseason family of Yell. Many changes in fortune and ownership have resulted in its present extent of only 4.5 acres on the shores of Basta Voe.

Bod of Gremista & Shetland Textile Working Museum

Lerwick ZE1 0PX

This 18th century fishing b?_d was the birthplace of Arthur Anderson, co-founder of the P&O shipping company. Two rooms are restored to how they looked 200 years ago and contain displays explaining the history of the whitefish industry at that time. The rest of the building houses the Shetland Textile Working Museum, specialising in the beautiful textiles that have become synonymous with the Shetland name.
