A 20-minute walk from the Bressay ferry and on route to Noss or the local play park, the bright and friendly café is a great stop when visiting Bressay. The Speldiburn GAN Shop is on site along with a community lending library and there’s a multi court outside for youngsters wanting a kick about.
Our current exhibition includes work by three local artists. Lovely pastel drawn animal portraits by Bressay artist Rozzane Perdu. Delicate landscape watercolours by by Shetland artist and cartoonist Smirk and a selection of botanical works by Heather Christie.
The Speldiburn Café was established in 2016 by Bressay Development Ltd, a community organisation who refurbished the former school canteen with funding help from Shetland Islands Council and Awards For All.
Named after a no-longer-visible burn which runs by the school, the Speldiburn was, in its time, well known to locals. A copy of the fiddle tune ‘the Speldiburn reel’, composed by the late Harry Tulloch, a Bressay fiddle player, is proudly displayed in the café.
