  2. thanks,but i hae recordins o dat tunes,da only ider tunes i ken o aboot finnigert is twa dit cam tae me when i wis dere,"DA ROD TAE FINNIGERT, and GRANNY TROW",but a'm afraid dey're only in my head,i kanna right doon music,and a'm no great at playin it eider.mind you you're no ment tae share tunes dit da trows teach you , is da monkey puzzle still living too?
  3. some of the piles of stones on hill tops etc are burrials,i know of 4 such piles on the west hill of tingwall.some standing stones are remnants of boundry dykes,sometimes the big standing stones are all that's left of these dykes,but sometimes you can see the line of the dyke on the ground,i know of 2 examples of this. but there are other examples of standing stones which stand alone,the "murder stone" in tingwall is one,the definative reason for this stone is still kinda up for debate,but people certainly used it as a marker,possably a boundry,and a meeting place among other reasons.they still do.
  4. dere might be nae ghosts dere,but i widna pit bets on dat,but dere's certainly trows,dey left me wi twartree exellent tunes,da rod tae finnigert, an granny trow,bein a cupple o dem,i see sum o me trees ir still livin

  7. can sumbody tell me "WHAT IS GOOD AGRICULTURE LAND"? I always thought it was land fur growing crops,eftir aa dat is da defination o agriculture.aa ider land in shetland is used fur grazeing animals.as far as planning permision goes i agree dit houses etc shood not be built on land dit is bein used fur growin crops,but if you rule oot aa da ider ground as GOOD AGRICULTURAL GROUND dan you can rule oot da whole o shetland,because dere's animals eating girs everywhar,even on da tap o sum sea stacks whar girs grows.think aboot it.
