Bonhoga Gallery is situated in Weisdale Mill, it promotes the best of Shetland, national and international applied art and craft through a programme of curated retail, exhibition and showcase opportunities.

In the south facing conservatory overlooking the Weisdale burn the cafe is a popular spot all year round. The menu features locally sourced produce and all food is prepared daily on the premises.

Bonhoga Gallery is 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.

Bonhoga Gallery is owned and run by Shetland Arts.

If you have any questions or want to reserve a table in the cafe please give us call on 01595 745750, during opening hours.

Bonhoga is part of Breastfeeding Friendly Scotland, supporting breastfeeding mums in public places. Find out more about the scheme here.
