Yell has much to offer to wildlife enthusiasts, hill walkers and those who simply want peace and quiet.

Burravoe is approximately 32 miles from Lerwick by road and involves an inter-island ferry crossing. A roro ferry runs from Tofton the Shetland mainland to Ulsta at the South end of the island of Yell. Burravoe, which is approximately 4 miles north of Ulsta, has a primary school, community hall, marina and pier, as well as the Old Haa which is a museum, art gallery, café, gift shop and garden with seasonal opening hours.
