The oldest building on the island, Burravoe's Old Haa is known for its crow-stepped gables (the stepped effect on the ends of the roofs), typical of an early-18th-century Shetland merchant's house. There's an earnest memorial to Bobby Tulloch, the great Shetland naturalist (1929–96), and the displays in the upstairs museum tell the story of the wrecking of the German ship, the Bohus, in 1924. A copy of the ship's figurehead is displayed outside the building. The
Old Haa serves light meals with home-baked buns, cakes, and other goodies and also acts as a kind of unofficial information center. A crafts shop is on the premises, too.
