Mid Yell is in a deep voe, sheltered by the uninhabited island of Hascosay. It has a 90m pier and a small boat marina which has room for 1 larger or 2 smaller visiting boats. When entering, keep close to the breakwater but risk of damage is low as the bottom is sandy. You can usually find a berth at the pier but it is used round the clock by fish farms, so the marina or anchoring might be the better option.

Staff at the Linkshouse Shop and Post Office (1 mile away) are very helpful to visiting yachts - and stock an amazing range of goods, from mops and buckets to bacon rolls and home-grown Yell strawberries (01595 702026).

Mid Yell is the best base for exploring the east coast of Yell and the neighbouring island of Fetlar, known for its snowy owls, red-necked phalaropes, puffin colonies and the seal nurseries of the Blue Banks. There are only daytime anchorages at Fetlar, at the Wick of Gruting and Wick of Tresta. There is a new ferry pier at Oddsta at the north end of the island.

Further south along the east coast at Otterswick is a figure head known as "Da White Wife", which was salvaged from the 1924 wreck of the German training ship 'Bohus'.

Mid Yell holds a fishing competition in the second week of August, a regatta in the first or second week in September and an agricultural show in East Yell in the first week of September.
