The Böd of Gremista, in Lerwick, built around 1790, was the birthplace of Arthur Anderson, co-founder of The Penninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company, (subsequently P&O).
It is furnished in a basic Shetland style, with displays from the time and life of Mr. Anderson.
The Böd of Gremista was acquired by the Shetland Museums Service in 1991, after the building had been restored and opened as a museum in 1987. It is run by The Shetland Amenity Trust and overlooks the Gremista Marina.
