Crofthouse Museum


The Shetland Crofthouse Museum is operated by Shetland Museum and Archives.

The property is presented in the style of how it would have looked in the 1870s. Smell the peat fire, discover the box beds and try to set the traditional Shetland mouse trap. The crofthouse also has a lovely garden.

Access contact details

Due to the nature of the building it is not suitable for wheelchair access. Entry to the crofthouse site is down a narrow, steep sloped track with three steps at the start of the path. The doorways into the interior of the buildings are narrow, the door-lintels are low and the floor is uneven.
