Shetland's Crofting Past

Join a member of our Visitor Experience Team who is also a crofter with a flock of native sheep, to learn about Shetland's crofting past and our native breeds.

Built on a necessity to survive in our harsh climate, you'll take a look back at the life of most rural Shetlanders in the 17th and 18th century and the importance of land, animals and local ingenuity to survive.

Tours will commence from the museum foyer and last approx. 45 minutes.

If you are interested in attending one of these tours but can’t make the time allocated, please contact us at [email protected] – we can arrange private tours – min charge for 8 persons.
