This is a long-forgotten relic of Shetland’s music-making heritage, discovered today in an abandoned, now falling down Croat house. Goodness only knows how many years it has laid there, slowly rotting away. What stories it could tell us of a former existence. How sad that this is its end game. #musicalinstrument #heritage #Shetland #sad

#timehop from five years ago today. Visiting #Orkney’s Ring of Brodgar on an overcast, damp morning. The #RingOfBrodgar predates #Stonehenge in its antiquity.
