Since 1976, Tommy and Mary Isbister have worked on the land of their delightful croft at Trondra. “Our main aim is to maintain native Shetland breeds of animals, poultry and crops.”

What makes this experience original is its hands on, natural approach. The croft has remained traditional, which is lightsome in such a modern world. When visiting Burland you will have the privilege of exploring the croft and meeting and feeding the animals, which are all very friendly and used to the public.

The Croft Trail is a very happy home to free range sheep, ducks, Shetland ponies, Shetland cows, some extremely sociable pigs and many more. The croft also has a restored watermill, herb rich pasture and much more to offer.

The Burland Croft Trail is an adventure enjoyed by all, very popular with Shetlanders and always an attraction for school trips.
