Other available material about Fair Isle
Set on Fair Isle and Orkney in the latter
half of the 19th century hard landscapes and hard work
provide the background for this tapestry of life and death.
Fatalism, joy and blind emotion play havoc with the harsh
realities expected on these islands, sewn like diamonds across
the waters north-east of mainland Scotland. Romance is
chaperoned by economic necessity, constrained by the
difficulties of travel, and released by the serendipitous
accidents of mortality. Unremitting hope brightens the simple
lives of three generations of island folk.
Cost price 5.80 plus p&p.

Fair Isle and Foula lie where the North Sea and the Atlantic waters meet. In the glittering ocean you can spot porpoises, dolphins, sharks, killer-whales, seals. And on those out-of-the way islands you can spot a regular visitor watching the seascape, the cliff scenery, the birds, the islanders.
Available from Stackhoull Stores - the latest Fair Isle video produced & directed by Sergio Mariotti.
