Yell is the larger of Shetland's north isles, lying between Mainland Shetland and the neighbouring island of Unst. Mid Yell, as the name suggests, lies approximately mid-way between the northern and southern extremities of the island and is a 10 mile drive from the southern ferry terminal at Ulsta. It is the main population centre of the island and is the location of most of the island's amenities, including a shop, school, leisure centre & swimming pool, medical centre including dental surgery, care centre, pier & boating club. A regular 20 minute subsidised ro-ro ferry service runs throughout the day and evening between Ulsta and Toft on Mainland Shetland, which itself is about 10 minutes from Brae & Sullom Voe, and approximately 27 miles from Lerwick.
