Indulged that in a massive way in the summer and autumn of 2004. Here are some more pictures, this time from a visit to Shetland early in September of that year.
The Dim Riv (pic 1) is a replica Viking ship that takes tourists round Lerwick harbour. At the time of my visit, there was no wind, so the vessel drifted round the harbour on the tide.
