About Voe

Voe is situated on the east Mainland of Shetland around the pier that projects into Olna Firth from its south shore. The pier was at the heart of a herring station that was set up in the 1800s. Olna Firth was also home to a whaling station operated by the Norwegian Whaling Company from 1904 until 1924. The pier now services fish farming in Olna Firth.

A newly revamped pier and marina provides facilities for yachts.
