About Burravoe (Yell)Burravoe, on the Island of Yell, has a pretty little harbour. Nearby is the Haa of Burravoe, the oldest surviving habitation on the island, housing a small museum on island life.
Burravoe was a regular call on the timetable of the Lerwick steamers that served Yell and Unst until 1950. And from 1956 a regular passenger ferry connected Burravoe with Mossbank on the Mainland. By 1987, however, the ferry terminus had transferred to Ulsta.
