Abstract


The paper identifies and describes a building at Brough Head, Eastshore, Dunrossness, Shetland and suggests that it is likely to be a seventeenth-century Scottish merchants' booth. Documentary evidence for the activities of Scottish merchants at Eastshore in the seventeenth century is outlined in order to present a context for the possible identification of the building.
