Drying The Peats

A perfect day for drying the peats -dry, sunny and a gentle breeze. Perfect
Delightful, would love to visit some of these islands again.

Ah, the peat. I remember my granny and my uncles cutting peat in Sullom, way back in the day. Lovely 'Shetland' image.

@777margo Yes they are cut for fuel. Not so much of it now but still a few folk carrying on the old tradition.
