Working on the west side in Scalloway gives me opportunity to explore the area. Scalloway was the ancient capital of Shetland up to 1708, when it was transferred to Lerwick. It has a small population of around 800, smaller than Sandwick

Interesting stone plaque depicting the theory of tidal motion
Another interesting feature of the area is the number of very mature trees, quiet a rarity in Shetland.
