Research Group

Olnafirth Whaling Station

Our new topic is "The Disappeared Shops of Shetland". More specifically we are currently looking at Scalloway shops 1851-1901.

We meet once a month on the second Thursday, usually in the Archive Room at the Museum

New members of the group always welcome

We have now completed our project to research the Shetland whaling stations which were in operation from approximately 1904 to 1929.  Our aim was to collate the information from the many sources held at the Archives, and online and produce a  history of the stations
