  • It is really a craft shop with one room with a nice weaving loom and some good quality examples of various textiles. It is far from a museum and not really worth 3 quid compared to say the UNST boat museum.
  • Nice little Museum. With shop. 3 rooms Museum 1 room shop. Nice knitter on the 1st floor.
