Scalloway Fire Festival!

So on Friday the 13th with a bit of snow and an icy wind the first Fire Festival of the year got under way with a shark headed galley...

And despite the cold night there was a good turn out for the impressive sight of the squads and torches parading down Main Street...

And here's a little bit of video from my action camera. Was a nice night for it in the end...


  1. Great stuff Kevin, I hope you've warmed up again!

  2. Cheers, it wasn't so cold really once you were out and moving about. Great night

  3. Fab photos and video. Can't wait until we are able to see the fire festivals for real 🙂

  4. Yes, it'll be a treat for you. I need to go to an Isles one sometime.
