Statement of Interest

B Group with Seafield and Rooms O' Seafield (see separate listings). Seafield was probably built by Charles Ogilvy, owner of the Shetland Banking Company, and bears the same name as his villa to the south of Lerwick. Seafield was the Yell base of Hay & Ogilvy of Lerwick, which collapsed in 1842 due to decline in the herring boom and damage to their fishing fleet in a gale. The collapse resulted in the establishment of Hay & Co in 1844. Seafield Pier is an essential part of this historic group on the shorefront opposite Mid Yell.
