The Old Haa of Brough
The Old Haa Museum at Burravoe, South Yell, 2007

The Old Haa of Brough in Burravoe, Yell, built for Robert Tyrie, a merchant, in 1672, houses the local museum for Burravoe and Yell. The archway with an armorial panel above, with Tyrie's initials and the year 1672, are remains of an old courtyard.
The museum has lots of information about island life in bygone days.

The Haa has a nice coffee shop, too, and don't forget to have a look at the garden - it is amazing, what is flowering in front of the wall.
