  • 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.
  • Small but lots of examples of Shetland knitting. There was a knitter when we were there . She was working on a traditional Shetland Shawl.
  • Not much to see. Not worth paying for
  • Fantastic place plenty to see and to learn
  • Nice little Museum. With shop. 3 rooms Museum 1 room shop. Nice knitter on the 1st floor.
