Shetland Amenity Trust

Shetland Amenity Trust’s mission is to safeguard, enhance, and promote everything that is distinctive about Shetland's natural and cultural heritage, ensuring it is accessible to be enjoyed by all.

The Trust was created in 1983 and has since delivered an extensive range of high-quality heritage and culture projects, in partnership with a range of local, national and international agencies.

Shetland Amenity Trust operates Shetland Museum and Archives, Sumburgh Head Lighthouse and Visitor Centre, the Crofthouse Museum, and Old Scatness Broch and Iron Age Village. Every year we deliver the popular Shetland Wool Week festival attracting visitors from all over the world; as well as a host of other cultural activities and events.

We are part of a community which takes great pride and pleasure in our cultural and natural heritage, embracing traditions, dialect and our physical environment in all of our activities.
