56. Day 24 in Shetland: Rain Day Museuming, Tea, and Cozying Up at Home
The forecast was pretty bleak, so we decided to visit the Unst Heritage Centre in Haroldswick, a short drive away. It is a VERY good little museum on Unst island life, the history and geology of the island, its arts and crafts and crofting roots. And of course, fishing and Vikings!
Here is a little map of the area where we were staying. The red arrow points to our croft house in Baliasta.
There are, basically, two places to dine out in Unst. One is a little sort-of cafe adjoined to a community shop, and the other is Victoria’s Vintage Tea Room. On this dreich day, it was perfect! We were happy to score a table overlooking the bay.
A pretty quiet day! It was nice to snuggle down and stay warm, and make some plans for the next day.
