Underhoull


Shetland

A small and scattered crofting settlement in the SW of Unst in Shetland, Underhoull overlooks Lunda Wick, 2½ miles (4 km) north northeast of the ferry terminal at Belmont. Located here are the Broch of Underhoull, with two excavated Norse farmsteads close by. The Upper Underhoull longhouse was excavated by the University of Aberdeen, University of Bradford and University of Copenhagen in 2008, while the Lower Underhoull site, with its Iron Age and Norse elements, was excavated in the 1960s.
