Recorded September 2, 2008. Shetland is an archipelago in Scotland, off the northeast coast. The islands lie to the northeast of Orkney, 170 miles from the Faroe Islands and form part of the division between the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the North Sea to the east. The largest island, known as “Mainland,” has an area of 374 square miles, making it the third-largest Scottish island and the fifth-largest of the British Isles. My tour of the Shetland Islands continues is this video as we have left Scalloway and drive to the west coast of Mainland Shetland for a scenic view. Along the way we see sheep, cows, horses and shetland ponies. The video concludes as the tour ends back in Lerwick. From:

Just a timelapse of an entire evening to morning showing our Simmer Dim or the lack of total darkness we have in the lovely light summers here in the Shetland Islands.

We visited this quiet little gray Scottish island town in 2009.

Irish jig.

This is a very short version of a fiddle from the Shetland Islands. There are two violins, one guitar and one bass guitar. Everything played by me. And since I am lazy, (and because it wouldn’t fit in the video) I only video taped the two violin tracks. The video is done after the recordning, so that’s why no microphone and no headphones are in the vid :P. And all the trills and stuff might not be the same as in the sound. GEAR: My violin My guitar My bass M-audio sound card MT-57 microphone Some cables 😛 And sorry for the cheezy hair look (as in most of my vids xD) but I was on a music festival all night, and I didn’t shower yet xD. Please rate and comment, and tell me if you want more violin vids. I can make some swedish folk music too if you want. And some american.

A stroll on the white sand in May 2010. Close to a ‘magic’ B&B called Windward in Scalloway. Only 6 miles from Lerwick.
