Burravoe, at the southern tip of Yell, is a land-locked anchorage with glorious walks, particularly around Heoganess, which shelters the harbour, operational since the 1500s. The area provides three options; the pier, the marina or to anchor in the excellent holding ground at the head of the voe. Access poses no problems for most visiting craft, however, anything over 3 metres should take care in the entrance of the voe.

The area holds an annual sailing regatta. The Old Ha' museum and heritage centre has fascinating exhibitions, for example the Bobby Tulloch photographic archives, as well as serving a great cup of tea with home bakes. The centre of the village is St Coleman’s Episcopal Church, a pretty building which adds a lot to the general feel of the area.
