Artist's Description

Weisdale Mill is in the Central Shetland mainland.

The story of its construction in 1855 is that the stone used to build it was reclaimed from the homes of 300 crofters “cleared” from the estate to make room for much more profitable (for the landowners) sheep rearing. Its construction suggests that the designers were not worried about the cost of materials for which was to become the largest corn mill in Shetland.

Today the mill finds use as home to three related ventures. The top floor is the Bonhoga Gallery, which shows a series of exhibitions of art and craft.

Also at the mill is the Shetland Textile Working Museum, run by the Shetland Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers. Demonstrations can be seen, and visitors can see a vast collection of textiles which show the history of spinning, weaving and knitting in Shetland from ancient times up to the present day.

The final part of the mill is the Mill Cafe, which extends out from the side of the Mill overlooking the Burn of Weisdale. A beautiful spot to sit outside on a fine day.

Weisdale Mill is well worth a visit.
