'Naethin ever cam frae Scotland/But dear meal an' greedy ministers.' - Shetland expression

Images from our weekend in Northmavine, the northern part of mainland Shetland. We stayed at the tiny white croft house on the right side of this photo. It was a lovely weekend of eating, drams, chat, and attempting to stay upright in 60+ mph winds whilst hiking.

Happy Up Helly Aa! We've seen the galley and heard the pipes. The parade is at 7 and the party starts at 9, and ends at 8am. Have a wee dram and think of the Jarl.

Greet pictures, lass. And I like the tautology inherent in the phrase, "mainland Shetland".
