New Connections Across the Northern Isles

Over the past few months the Old Haa has become involved in a new exciting project which connects maritime heritage across the Northern Isles of Scotland.

The project, a partnership between Shetland Amenity Trust and Orkney Art, Museums and Heritage,  links people and heritage through the following organisations - The Old Haa in Yell, Westray Heritage Centre, Cunningsburgh History Group and Orkney Historic Boat Society.  Joint workshops have been taking place to assist communities to co-curate  and research cultural resources for sustainable development.  More details can be found on the New Connections Across the Northern Isles Facebook page.



The local Yell Community helps to raise funds, and although admission to the museum is free, donations are always very welcome.
