General Information

'Brough House' is situated close to the shore in the village of Burravoe in the south-eastern corner of the island of Yell, the largest of Shetland's North Isles which lies between Mainland Shetland and the neighbouring island of Unst.

Yell measures about 19 miles long by 7.5 miles wide and has a population of around 900. Local amenities in Burravoe itself include a primary school, a marina and pier, and a small museum at the Old Haa close to the House. There are local shops by the ferry terminal at Ulsta, and at Aywick however the island's main amenities can be found at Mid Yell to the north, the main population centre, where there is another local shop, a Junior High School providing education from nursery to secondary four, a superb leisure centre with 12.5m heated indoor swimming pool, main hall, squash court, fitness room & football pitch, and a health centre including dental surgery.

A regular, 20 minute, subsidised ro-ro ferry service connects Yell with Mainland Shetland, running from Ulsta just four miles from the house, to Toft, about 10 minutes from Brae & Sullom Voe, and approximately 27 miles from Lerwick. A ferry from Gutcher at the north end of the island provides a similar service to Unst.

Shetland is linked to mainland Scotland by an overnight ferry service from Aberdeen operated by Northlink Ferries (www.northlinkferries.co.uk). Flybe (www.flybe.com) operates direct flight to Shetland from Aberdeen, Edinburgh & Glasgow. Islanders are currently entitled to discounted ferry and air fares.
