Film showing - Havera: the story of an island

Tuesday, August 8th 2017 11:00am - 11:00am

Havera is a small island off the Shetland coast which was once inhabited, but no longer.

This delightful film tells the story of how, despite having little fresh water, no peat and only one truly safe harbor, this small island supported it's small population for much longer than any of the surrounding islands.

See the story of this island, the people and the way of life that no longer exists.
