The Crofthouse Museum takes visitors back to a time where life’s essentials were of a bare minimum. Located in a delightful setting, this typical thatched crofthouse has been restored to how it would have looked in the 1870s. Smell the peat fire, discover the box beds and try to set the traditional Shetland mouse trap. There is also a lovely garden with a path which leads to a restored watermill.
