Shetland Crofthouse Museum
In the Dunrossness area of South Mainland, Shetland is the Shetland Crofthouse Museum at South Voe. It was restored to how it would have looked during the 19th century, with a typical two-room crofthouse and outbuildings comprising barn, byre, and drying kiln. There is also a restored water mill on the nearby burn.
