  7. ^^^ I don’t think there’s a real understanding of the scale of these windmills. A 49m blade is only the radius. So would I be correct to imagine something covering the area of the Gilbertson Park pitch, on the top of a mast/tower, on the top of a hill?

  9. From the Oxford dictionary… -man •comb. form 1 in nouns denoting a man of a specified nationality or origin: Frenchman. Would “Shetland resident, Lerwick resident, etc†not be more appropriate in these cases? Also, as far as I understood, growing up in the 50s and 60s, ‘soothmoother’ was just the Shetland term for ‘incomer’. It’s a shame that some of the innocent language of our childhood has now taken on a different and alienating interpretation.
