Fethaland

… the northernmost point of mainland Shetland …

… more dramatic scenery …

… and the remains of a once thriving fishing village …

… from the 15th to early 20th century men set sail in open rowing boats called ‘sixareens’ returning only when they could carry no more fish …

… the fish were cured and dried on the beach …

… a tough life …

… only the stone houses remain …

… strong and beautiful …
