The History of Hay's Dock

Join a member of our Visitor Experience Team, who is also a retired fisherman, to learn about the area surrounding Shetland Museum & Archives, known as Hay's Dock.

For such a small dock area it highlights much of the changes over time to Shetland's commercial maritime past which you'll be guided through.

You'll also learn about some of the boats built in the boat sheds which remain on site, and take a look at the history of some other ventures based at the dock too.

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.
