CONCERTS SUPPORTED BY:
The Community of Fair Isle
While we were working on Yell and Unst, we stayed at Gardies Fauld. Thanks to Karen for looking after us and for the yummy eggs!
Without the enthusiasm and commitment from all these folk we would not have made it, which makes our visits a true team effort.
and finally, a some photos on Unst:
tango on the most northerly beach in Britain (well, it had to be done!)
Unst Bus Shelter - looking fantastic in yellow - brilliant!
Anna, Stuart and Ian look out at Muckle Flugga - Britain's most northerly landfall (and lighthouse).
