Burravoe is at the south-eastern tip of Yell. Thanks to its excellent shelter, has been in use since the 1500s.

Care should be taken when approaching Burravoe, as there are dangerous rocks in the approach and the entrance to the voe has a 2.5m bar. Once inside, there are three mooring options: you can tie up at the pier or in the marina, or anchor in the excellent holding ground at the head of the voe.

The Old Haa' museum and heritage centre has a fascinating exhibition and is home to the archives of a noted local naturalist and photographer, the late Bobby Tulloch. It also serves a great cup of tea with home baking.

Ulsta is the terminus for the Yell ferry. There is a pontoon with 2 berths. A shop and fuel are available close by.

There are fine walks around Heoganess, the peninsula which shelters the harbour, which has been in use for over 500 years.
