Mid Yell is the largest settlement on the island of Yell and a historical centre of trade.

In the 19th C., it was the home of the renowned scholar Laurence Williamson and in the 20th C., to the poet and critic William J. Tait. It was also the home of Jake Davis, the alleged hacker.

Robert L. Johnson, archivist, has published a scholarly work: A Shetland Country Merchant: being an account of the life and times of James Williamson of Mid Yell, 1800-1872, Shetland Publishing Company, 1979.
