The name Burravoe is derived from the Old Norse Borgavágr, meaning broch bay.
The most notable building is the Old Haa Museum which dates from 1637 (and may have been completed in 1672) and is the oldest house on Yell. On 19 January 1942, a Catalina aeroplane crashed on the hill above Burravoe. Seven of her ten crew were killed, and one of the propellers can be seen outside the Old Haa Museum.
