    In this week’s Shetland Times: • Workers at the Raba restaurant were the target of “atrocious” racist abuse. A man is fined for the offences. •  Housing shortages could hit business development over the next decade, a new report warns. • Firefighters spent a second day trying to bring a fire at the Gremista landfill site under control • Footballers in the South Mainland take to the pitch in memory of respected farmer Bryden Budge. • Music, proposals and a baby announcement at the Legion … it must be Heavy Metal Buffet. • Photos and reports from the Unst…
  • Session A9 make Mareel pitstop in Scottish tour

    Peter Johnson
    3 Sep 2015 | 8:11 am
    One of Scotland’s top trad acts, featuring Shetland fiddler Kevin Henderson, will be performing at Mareel again on Tuesday as part of the band’s first tour for 18 months. Session A9 have made a big name for themselves nationally and internationally, often billed as “Scotland’s supergroup”. But the members are all part of other bands and Henderson himself is involved in Fiddler’s Bid, Boys of the Lough and Nordic Fiddlers Bloc. Unfortunately it will be something of a flying visit for Henderson, who now lives in Norway. The Session A9 tour begins in the Isle of Skye today and the…
  • Last meeting for council’s police cells committee

    3 Sep 2015 | 8:09 am
    The visiting committee for police cells came to an end this week after 138 years of inspections to ensure prisoners are being treated humanely and being housed in satisfactory conditions. The committee, which was a local authority responsibility, had its final meeting on Monday. The service has been replaced by a system of voluntary independent prison monitors appointed directly by HM Inspectorate of Prisons. Councillor Amanda Westlake, along with fellow members Allison Duncan and convener Malcolm Bell, had the authority to inspect any of Lerwick Police Station’s legalised cells at any…
  • Crews called back to Gremista landfill fire

    Shetland Times
    3 Sep 2015 | 12:25 am
    Fire crews were this morning called back to the landfill site at the Gremista waste management plant. The brigade was first called yesterday to deal with a rubbish fire when staff at the plant noticed smoke coming from the tip when they turned up for work yesterday morning. Crews were on the scene most of yesterday to bring the fire under control. But overnight the fire seems to have been fanned by the wind with smoke billowing over Gremista, the power station and beyond. The fire service were alerted again just before 6am. This morning the service confirmed that four appliances were in…
  • ‘This is not the wild west’ sheriff warns scaffolders

    Shetland Times
    2 Sep 2015 | 9:41 am
    Scaffolders from out of town have been warned Shetland is “not the wild west” after they each caused offence at a Lerwick pub. Neil Barr, 33, of Aspen Place in South Shields, South Tyneside, was fined a total of £1,800 by the sheriff when he admitted shouting, swearing, behaving aggressively at the Lounge Bar and threatening a female member of staff on 27th June. He stripped himself and walked around the bar naked during the incident, which took place shortly before 6pm on a Saturday night, and later resisted police in Law Lane, struggling with them. Co-accused Lee Donnelly, 40,…

    Scotland have been placed in an incredibly tough group with the likes of Germany, Poland & ROI all looking to make it to the finals. So far the Scots haven’t done too badly sitting in third just a couple of points of second place Germany. That makes this game a must win for Strachan’s men who need all the points they can get as they go up against the top two in their next games. Georgia, although not being the worst side in the world, have performed miserably in this qualifying campaign and sit second from bottom; only above minnows Gibraltar. Having failed to score in their…

    A lovely back lane on the way to Holyrood “Jamie, Jamie”… Comes under the “not quite what I expected” category… Good evening dear reader! A few images. The bottom was disappointing and was a lesson learned; check your camera settings regularly! I’ll have a play later to see if I can improve the lighting but wanted to do another update about my trip. This was effectively day one and early day two. Day one was a trip to the Old Kirk. I collected my friend K from Edinburgh airport at the indecent hour of 7:55am which meant I left my airbnb in Glasgow at…

  • Upon the Highland Line at Glengoyne Distillery

    Keith Savage
    2 Sep 2015 | 11:30 am
    Due north of Glasgow stands one of the nearest distilleries for those looking for a dram straight off the plane. Wedged between Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and Scotland’s biggest city, Glengoyne Distillery hides among the hills of Dumgoyne in quintessentially green and pastoral Scottish countryside. The distillery is uniquely sited upon the Highland Line — that old bugbear fabricated to separate “lowland” and “highland” cultures and used by the King to resettle the non-barbarous Scots (i.e., lowlanders) in Ulster and the New World. More of a…
  • At Castle Tioram, the Mystique of Moidart

    Keith Savage
    26 Aug 2015 | 9:55 am
    The Scottish highlands west of Loch Linnhe are something of a black box. The loch, an enormous arm of sea water, thrusts into the highlands all the way up to Fort William, clefting Lochaber in twain. If you look at a map, this severed land seems to hang down into the sea, barely holding onto the Scottish mainland at Arisaig and Glenfinnan. There are three access points to the lands of Moidart, Morvern, and Ardnamurchan, none of which are particularly convenient: The car ferry at Corran, the A861 south of Lochailort, and the ferry to Kilchoan from Tobermory on Mull. Hard to reach,…
  • Waking Summer at Edinburgh’s Beltane Fire Festival

    Keith Savage
    19 Aug 2015 | 9:48 am
    From time immemorial, Celtic pagans have celebrated four great festivals that straddled the equinoxes and solstices: Samhain, Imbolc, Beltane, and Lughnasadh. These festivals were both practical and mystical in nature, tied as they were to the herding of livestock and the appeasement of capricious spirits and faeries. Beltane historically occurred on the first of May to mark the beginning of summer and the time when the cattle were driven out to summer pastures. Arcane rituals using special bonfires were performed to protect the cattle, crops, and people. Fire played an integral role in the…
  • Eat Here Now: Wildest Drams

    12 Aug 2015 | 9:55 am
    Serendipity never tasted so good. While chatting with random people is the name of the game for traveling extroverts, it usually takes a beer or two for introverts like me to get anywhere near that mental space. It can be uncomfortable, but travel has a way of greasing the social gears, and so this story begins in my favorite Edinburgh haunt: The Bow Bar. As is typical for me, I like to break up my explorations with a pint here and there in local institutions of fine drinking pedigree. It gives me a chance to decompress and process everything the day has thrown at me. Fine cask ales and…

    Edinburgh has no shortage of amazing places to eat. From traditional Scottish dishes to every type of ethnic cuisine you can imagine, Edinburgh provides one of the best foodie scenes (along with Glasgow) in the whole country. Now, I love a fine dining experience, but I tend to gravitate toward more affordable options just to stretch my dollars further. Every once in awhile, however, an opportunity to break from my self-imposed foodie exile presents itself. When I contacted The Balmoral Hotel, perhaps Edinburgh’s most famous hotel, I found just that opportunity. Hotels, however, are…
