Hi, I'm looking for a peat dig, I live in Brae, who do I speak to for an allocated dig site?

Also where would I buy a Tusker from?

Thanks folks

I believe the Brae school has a peat bank that the pupils cut every year so it might be worth asking them if all else fails.

Might be able to put a wanted ad up online here for a Tushkar. You could buy the handles at Hays many moons ago. Probably to get a new one you'd have to ask a blacksmith e.g. Bruce Wilcox, to make  the blade at least?

Check the Facebook Shetland sales groups, there's been at least a couple of used but still good tushkars for sale on there in the last few weeks.
