This week, I received the current newsletter of the Shetland Amenity Trust, titled the 'Unkans'. http://www.shetland-heritage.co.uk/unkans. Take some time and have a good look at the whole site. I'm certain I can speak for all those who have come on the Scottish Skeins and Skerries Tours, when I say that a visit to the Shetland Museum is one of the highlights of our stay on Shetland. Shetlanders are justifiably proud of the building and the collections, and the Museum is the venue for many local events.
The Mareel, a stunning new building is next door, and also situated on the waterfront. To
give you an idea of the facilities and activies at the Mareel, I've copied from their website.
"Mareel is the UK's most northerly music, cinema and creative industries centre.
Situated in a prominent quayside area in Lerwick next to the Shetland Museum and Archives, Mareel has a live performance auditorium, two cinema screens, rehearsal rooms, a recording studio, education and training spaces, a digital media production suite, broadcast facilities and a cafe bar with free high speed wi-fi internet access."
