Art, crafts and a great cafe, all in a beautiful location
Bonhoga Gallery is situated in Weisdale Mill, on land cleared for large-scale sheep farming in the 19th Century. It was a meal and barley mill from 1855 until the early 1900s, then used as a butchery and tannery before falling into dereliction in the middle of the 20th century. The building was renovated and opened as Bonhoga Gallery in 1994, and since then has been welcoming large numbers of both Shetland residents and visitors to the isles. Bonhoga means ‘my spiritual home’ in Shetland dialect.
The gallery is owned and run by Shetland Arts. A programme of seven exhibitions is organised each year for the Upper Gallery, featuring local, national and international contemporary visual art and craft. Downstairs are smaller scale exhibitions by craftmakers from both Shetland and the rest of the UK.
