Yes - I was there for a week in summer 2003. I was on a "tour" arranged by Shetland Wildlife. It was designed to be a week in the life of the island. We stayed at the Bird Observatory, which luckily also had the only bar on the island. We met with weavers, spinners, botanists, archaeologists, weathermen, crofters and even the ranger and warden. We met bird people from around the world and participated in bird surveys. To top it off, they threw an island-wide party for us with local musical talent. We knew half of the redidents by the time we left. The ferry crew were all local and wonderful. If you want to see a subset of my pictures go to: craig.csufresno.edu/fac/kath... then click on the button Favorite Links. You can then access Fair Isle pictures. You might also like the Orkney, Shetland and Iceland pictures. Hope this posting makes it - the last one got a "Server not found..." Kathy

Hi Kathy That sounds great! Hope you will write some tips on your VT pages here. Afraid I haven't gotten around to do much on my Fair Isle page, but maybe it's time :-) Welcome to VT and hope you have fun here! Greetings from Norway, David
