Attraction Information

Annual summer Exhibitions provide visitors with the opportunity to dip into many aspects of Bressay's past. Bressay Heritage Centre also houses an extensive archive of material relating to the island's history through photographs, maps, geneaology, etc.
A new and exciting visitor attraction is the reconstruction, next to the Heritage Centre, of the central core of a Bronze Age Burnt Mound, which Bressay History Group rescued from being washed away by the sea. Onsite interpretation will assist visitors to explore the interior of this unique mysterious construction.
The Bressay History Group are part of the network of Shetland Information Points and their custodian can provide detailed local information, directions and suggestions, such as popular walks.
