Bressay Shetland Islands

There are plans to participate in other learning events and networking opportunities with other community development groups in Shetland.

BD ltd recognise that partnership working will be key to realising much of their development plan, and they are beginning to form strong relationships with key organisations such as HIE.

The Speldiburn Café in the school's former canteen, named after the burn that passes next to the premises, opened in June 2016, set up by BD ltd following extensive consultation with the Bressay community.

The school's former music room now houses a second hand shop, and a range of classes and workshops have been held in the new hub.

Fishing in Shetland The Shetland Islands have an amazing variety of trout fishing and sea angling possibilities.

There are clear, fertile machair lochs close to the sea, a vast number of sparkling lochs with feisty trout inland and seas that provide abundant fishing in many species.

The official opening took place in May 2017 and was covered by the Shetland Times.

There is much to do in Bressay but the development plan coupled with staff and volunteer resources provides a framework for action.

Here she offers her take on the job so far: Over recent years Bressay has experienced the ongoing challenges of declining and ageing population, alongside remoteness from the market, reducing transport capacity and logistics, high cost of living and limited service provision.

In late 2013, Bressay residents formed a steering group to see what they could do to reverse decline on the island.
