Map of South HavraSouth Havra

  Cruise around South Havra and the other Scalloway Isles as part of the Scalloway Isles cruise or take an evening trip - mooring and going ashore by small boat.

  In the 16th century, South Havra was the home of Olaf Sinclair, the magistrate of Shetland.

Corn Windmill Ruin  Eight families lived on South Havra up until 1923. There was a full time school teacher with eight pupils. The ground on South Havra was fertile and productive but one of the reasons why people left was lack of peats which had to be fetched from Deepdale on the mainland of Shetland.

  The summit is 42m high and on the top stands the ruin of a windmill (shown above) which is nearly five metres high. It was the only corn grinding windmill in Shetland and was built by islanders in the 19th century as there was no stream to operate a water mill. The ruin is well worth visiting and the island is an exciting place to explore.

  The coves on the South coast are called Harbour and West Ham and are exposed and partly filled with drying rocks.
