Route 74. — Stromness ; Cliffs of Hoy. Sect. VIII.

once a fine residence, rebuilt by Earl
Robert Stewart in imitation of Holy-
rood, viz., a quadrangle, with a well
in the middle.

The Latin inscription over the gate
(now gone) " Dominus Eobertus
Stewartus, filius Jacobi V., Ilex
Scotorum, hoc opus instruxit," con-
stituted one of the charges against
his son when tried for high treason,
though most likely it was only a
grammatical error. ]

Opposite to Stromness, and about
3 m. distant, is the island of Hoy,
the western extremity of which,
called the Kame of Hoy, presents a
remarkable likeness to the profile of
Sir Walter Scott. Hoy is the only
island which off"ers any really fine
scenery, but a tolerably calm day
must be selected for visiting it, as the
sea rages with particular fury when
the weather is at all unsettled. The
Ward Hill is 1556 ft. above the sea,
and is celebrated for its Vipacs and
its botanical treasures, which include
Arbutus alpina, A. uva-ursi, Dryas
octopetela, Lycopodia (half-a-dozen
different species), Lichen frigidus,
Solidago virgaurea, Saxifraga, etc.

To the S.E. of it is the " Dicarfic
Stone,'" 2 m. distant. This stone is
20 ft. long by 44 ft. wide and 7 ft.
thick, and has had an aperture
scooped out in it, with a bed on each
side. It is said to have been a
heathen altar originally, and subse-
quently the abode of a Christian
hermit ; but in the mythology of the
country "Troled, a dwarf famous in
the northern Sagas, is said to have
framed it for his own favourite resi-
dence. The lonely shei^herd avoids
the place, for at sunrise, night, noon,
or sunset, the misshapen form of the
necromantic owner may sometimes
still be seen by the ' Dwarfie Stone. ' "
— Pirate.

The Grand sight of Hoy— its W.
face of cliff" — can only be viewed pro-
perly from the sea, and is seen to the
greatest advantage by the voyager by
steamer from Stromness to Thurso.

It is the most glorious sea front in
Great Britain, extending for a mile
at an elevation sheer from the water
of 1000 ft. Its grandeur grows upon
the spectator as he continues to look
at it, for at first sight he cannot
suppose it to be of such altitude. At
the farther end of the wall is the
"Old Man of Hoy," an insulated
pillar of rock, which once bore some
resemblance to the human foi-m, but
the loss of its head in a storm has
considerably interfered with the like-
ness. It rises 300 ft. vertically in
front of the cliff".

" See Hoy's Old iMan, whose summit bare
Pierces the dark blue fields of air ;
Based in the sea, his fearful form
Glows like the spirit of the storm."

Geologically it consists of a base of
porphyry, supporting a column of

Amongst the other islands of the
Orkneys deserving a visit is Egilshexj,
containing an old Church of 11th or
early in 12th centy. There is nothing
in its architecture to fix its age. It
is said to have been built upon the
spot Avhere Magnus was murdered,
and therefore dedicated to him. The
building, however, is much older than
the crime, which may have been com-
mitted within its walls. The tower
is 50 ft. high, and round like those
of Norfolk, but the building is dis-
used and roofless.

To the IST. AV. of the whole group is
the island of Westray, on which are
the extensive ruins of Noltland
Castle, founded by Thomas Tulloch,
Bishop of Orkney, in 1422. The
initials T. T., with the figure of a
bishop kneeling, are upon one of the
capitals of the piUars supporting the
staircase. The castle remained the
residence of the bishops, and was ob-
tained by Andrew Bruce, the last
bishop, for his brother-in-law Gilbert
Balfour of Westray. His descendant
having espoused the cause of Prince
James Stewart in 1715, the castle of
Noltland was burnt by the Royalist
troops. The most easterly of the islands


Route 76. — Shetland: Lerwick.


of Orkney is Sandey, whicli appears
to have suffered terribly from the
attacks of the sea, as the Start Point,
on which there is a lighthouse, "was
found by Mr. Stevenson in 1816 to
be an island every flood tide ; yet,
even within the memory of some old
people then alive, it had formed one
continuous tract of firm ground."


Shetland Islands, Lerwick,
Mousa, Fetlar.

Steamers twice a week from Kirk-
wall to Lerwick.

The passage from Kirkwall to
Lerwick occupies about 12 hours,
the steamer passing half-way on rt.
Fair Isle, 25 m. from any other land,
220 inhab. In 1588, after the defeat
of the Invincible Armada, its admi-
ral, the Duke of Medina Sidonia,
retreated northwards, pursued by the
English squadron, and was wrecked
upon the largest of the Shetland
islands. After living here for some
time, most of his crew were murdered
by the inhabitants, who feared that
a famine would be the consequence
of an increased demand upon their
resources, and the Duke managed
with great difficulty to make his
escape to the mainland of Shetland,
whence he eventually got back to
Spain. The vast 2^'>'&cipices of these
islands are the most attractive feat-
ures ; in some places cataracts tumb-
ling over the edge into the sea, 700
or 800 ft. below.

The employments of the inhabit-
ants are fishing and fowling, while
the women are famous for their skill
in knitting woollen articles, a skill
which they attribute to the Spanish
association, the patterns which they
work bearing a remarkable resem-
blance to those seen on similar work
done by the Moors. As soon as Fair
Isle is lost to sight, Sumhurgh, the

most southerly point of Shetland,
comes into view, with its bare top and
naked sides, guarded by a lighthouse.
This lofty promontory (near whi(^h
the reader of " The Pirate " Avill re-
member dwelt the father of Mor-
daunt Merton) is constantly exposed
to the current of a strong and furious
tide, which, setting in between the
Orkney and Shetland isles, and run-
ning with force only inferior to that
of the Pentland Firth, takes its name
from the headland, and is called the
Roost of Sumburgh. On a neck of
land in the West Voe are the ruins
of Jarlshof, near which a new resi-
dence has been built by the pro-
prietor of Sumburgh. The cleft in
the rock by which the inhabitants
descend from the cliff above to the
foot is called EricFs S'tejjs. To rt. is
a higher point called Fitfiel or Fitful
Head (White Mountain), the abode
of JSTorna, the Shetland prophetess.
The tourist who ^Aishes to explore
the southern part of Mainland can
land at Duurossness, and work his
way along the coast (about 30 m.)
to Lerwick.

Stea'^inei's land passengers in small

Lerwick {Inns : The Queen's ; Zet-
land), the capital of the Shetland s,
and their only town, standing nearly
in the centre at the E. side, on a
headland surrounded on 3 sides by
the sea ; many of the houses stand
in the water.

Steamers twice a week in summer,
from Lerwick to the Northern Islands
—Yell, Unst, Fetlar, etc.

Lerwick has an excellent har-
bour 1 m. wide at the mouth, and
protected by the natural breakwater
of Bressay Island on the E., and on
all other sides by hills of gentle
elevation. On the S. of the town is
a small Fort constructed by Crom-
well, but destroyed by a Dutch
frigate in 1673. It was remodelled
in 1781, and caUed, after the Queen,
Fort Charlotte. Lerwick possesses a


Route 76. — LenvicJc; Tower of Mousa. Sect. VIII.

handsome Academy, and an Hospital
for aged persons, the gift of a Mr.
Anderson, a native of tlie place.
The town itself is irregular, many
of the gabled houses being built
almost in the water. The main
street is only just broad enough
to admit a cart in some places,
and tortuous, allowing no view
of the sea. It has a j^avement of
smooth flags, with a narrow cause-
way in the centre, on which the
horses walk, while the cartwheels
run on the flags. It is a bus}^ port,
1600 inhab. Shipbuilding is carried
on, and a large trade Avith Holland,
and it sends much salt cod to Spain.
Knitting is the employment of the
women, and Lerwick enjoys a cele-
brity for its export of knitted wool-
len articles. The original small
breed of Shetland sheep, yielding the
finest wool, is nearly extinct, the
race having been crossed with the
Cheviot. Excursions from Lerwick
— a. To Timvall, about 2 m. to the
N.W., a very picturesque valley,
w^here the "foude," or magistrate of
Shetland, used to hold his court.
The road from Lerwick to Mousa
affords fine sea-views, but the gene-
ral aspect of the country is desolate,
trees being unknown except under
shelter of walls.

b. 6 m. to the S.AV. of Lerwick is
the village of Scalloway, and tlie
ruins of the Cattle of Earl Patrick,
the tyrdnit, consisting of 3 storeys
with turreted angles.

To the S. of Lerwick, on the E.
coast, half-way between it and Dun-
rossness, is the Island of Mousa, upon
which stands the most perfect speci-
men of a Pictish burgh or Fort. It is
42 ft. high, swelling out below, and
expanding again at the top. See In-
troduction, Section II. The centre
was an open shaft, admitting air and
light to the galleries. Torfseus says
that to this foi'tress Erland, son of
Harold the Fairspoken, carried off'
the mother of Harold the Norwegian

jarl, a famous beauty ; and that the
jarl, unable to take it by force or
famine, was glad to assent to terms
by w^hich the lady became the wife
of her ravisher.

The name of Shetland or Zetland
is a corruption of the old "Hialt-
landia," by which name these
islands were known to the earliest
chroniclers. Tlie group consists of
100, but only 31 are inhabited, the
population according to the last re-
turn being 31,678, The climate is
very variable, damp, and stormy. To
strangers its incessant moisture is
very depressing, though the inha-
bitants do not find it unwholesome.
In winter the cold is not great, but
the days are very short, and their
gloom is not compensated by the
absence of night during a great part
of summer. Spring can scarcely be
said to commence till April, and little
general warmth is experienced before
the middle of June. Summer ends
again with August.

Although, visited under favourable
circumstances of season and weather,
the Shetland archipelago 08*6 rs many
points of interest to the tourist, it is
no less true that, until the facilities
of locomotion shall be greatly in-
creased, much time may be lost in
fruitless eff'orts to reach these points.
Many of these hundred islets attain
a remarkable elevation ; but cliff
scenery that is rather grotesc^ue than
grand soon tires the observer, and
the vast expanse of brown bleak
moorland, intersected by narrow
fiords, or closing round a sleeping
loch, is but a poor compensation for
the hills and woodlands of more for-
tunate districts. The traveller who
makes his way to these parts in
hopes of sport runs a great risk of
disappointment. No doubt, of mere
sea-fowl, every variety, some very
rare, may be found among the less
frequented islands ; but of geese,
du(^'ks, curlew, teal, snipe, etc., he
will find no more than may be met
with on any other part of the coast

of England or Scotland. There is
excellent fishing in the streams that
run into the fiords, the sea-trout
sometimes weighing as much as 15
lbs., and of ordinary sea-fish the
supply is unlimited. Seal are rarely
caught or even seen, except about
certain spots, such as Papa Stour, to
the recesses of whose porphyry caves
they retire to breed.

To encourage tillage all cultivated
land was freed from the tax or " scat "
levied on pasture and grazing stock.
At the death of a holder all the land
was equally divided amongst his
children, male and female. This is
the Udal tenure, and it acknowledges
no superior and imposes no service.
"Of whom, then," asked a southern
judge, accustomed to feudal right,
" does the Shetlander hold ? " "Of
God Almighty," replied his advo-
cate. The country was governed by
the "Thing" or Parliament, which
assembled in the open air in a place
3 m. N. of Lerwick, still called

Professor Airy thinks that many
of the Shetland words are Swedish,
and instances the word "grind," or
gate, as being common to both

The Shetlands were, in the 16th
centy. intrusted to stewards ap-
pointed by the Crown, but as they
farmed the revenues, and it was their
interest to make what surplus they
could, the islanders suff'ered greatly
from their exactions, and the memory
of Earl Patrick Stewart is yet the
subject of execration. The last
steward was the Earl of Morton,
and the Earl of Zetland now holds
the casualties by feudal grant from
the Crown.

The fisheries are the principal
employment of the people ; for ling,
cod, and herrings near home, and
seals or whales on the coast of Green-
land. Lerwick presents a very gay

scene upon the return of the whalers
from the Ai-ctic regions ; for two-
thirds of their crews are landed upon
these islands, with all their summer
earnings, which sometimes amount
to as much as £30 per man.

On the E. side of Bressay Island
is the Island of Noss. The Head of
Noss is reached by crossing the hills
of Bressay and taking the ferry at
the foot of the opposite descent, with
permission to land from the landlord.
Noss Holm is a flat-headed rock, de-
tached from the main by a narrow
fissure lined by cliff's 400 or 500 ft.
high. Access to it was formerly ob-
tained by a cradle swung to a cord
dangling by a loop to a rope stretched
across the gap. This, having be-
come worn out and rotten, has been
some time removed. The rock is
the resort of myriads of sea-fowl at
certain seasons, and many persons
live by bird-catching, being swung
at a rope's end from the rock above.
In Bressay remains of 3 Christian
cells or chapels and several burghs
are said to exist.

Upon the island of Yell, which is
the most northerly but one of the
Shetland group, are the remains of
8 burghs, and the traces of 20
chapels may be discovered ; but
most of these have little left except
the foundations.

About 5 m. from this is the island
of Fetlar, much of which has been
already brought into cultivation, and
the remainder forms an excellent
grazing ground for the beautiful
little Shetland ponies long time ex-
ported to England. Brough Lodge
(Lady Nicolson), a castellated man-
sion, occupies a picturesque situation
on the coast facing Yell, and is the
only house of note in the island.

The cliif scenery in the neighbour-
hood of St. Magnus Bay, to the
N.W. of Mainland, is very fine and
