Unst, Yell & Outer Isles

On the ferry On the ferry Colin Jamieson routinely visits Yell and Unst on a Thursday.

This is a service we have provided since 1986 with only a few cancellations due to adverse weather conditions! Whalsay visits are usually arranged on a monthly basis and we visit several of the other outer isles as and when necessary. Please note there is an additional charge for the vet visiting your pet at home or croft. 

Unst The vet consults at the Baltasound Hall from approximately 10.40am to 11.40am on Thursdays, and then visits any farm animals or horses needing attention. Please phone our Bixter surgery on 01595 810456 to make an appointment.
Yell As the population is so spread out in Yell, we do not have a central surgery, but do home visits instead on Thursday afternoons. A member of our reception team will be able to give you an approximate time for your visit, which may vary depending on the vet’s workload.
Whalsay Visits are arranged in a similar system to Yell – please call a member of our office staff to make an appointment.
Outer Isles A vet occasionally visits other isles such as Foula, Fetlar and Papa Stour.
