Gutcher is a settlement on the northeast coast of Yell in the Shetland islands. From here, rollon/roll off ferry services to Belmont on Unst and Hamars Ness on Fetlar operate. The settlement has a harbour, and a former post office which, in 2012, reopened as a Bed and Breakfast. There is a café/shop, (the Gutcher Goose Cafe) that reopened in May 2016.

The former post office, once subjected to aerial attack.

During World War II, the Luftwaffe bombed the post office at Gutcher in an attempt to disrupt the communications system.[1]
