Trondra and Burra
Haa of the Sinclairs of Houss.
Ruinous. Appears to have been a fairly typical tall Haa.
1½ storey. Small Haa with later (1910) baronial porch. Windows
have been altered and enlarged. Foula was part of the estates of Mitchell
of Girlsta and Scott of Melby from 1695. The Baronial porch was added
by Prof. Ian B. Stoughton Holbourn.
early 18th c.
Two storey. Dumpy with crowstepped gables. Interior panelled? Roof timbers
said to be from wrecks.
Built as the factors house by the Stewarts of Brough (Orkney) who acquired
Fair Isle in 1766. A fine early Haa, probably more influenced by Orkney
traditions than those of Shetland.
