Gone fishing

Excuse us; we’ve gone fishing… but we’re taking you with us!

Join Shetland Life for this fishy March issue as we take to the high seas with a trip through Shetland’s pelagic past and present. Ryan Taylor explores the history of the Swan as she enters uncertain waters and we settle down and chat to Bobby Polson from the pelagic trawler, Serene, and find out what it’s really like to skipper one of these impressive mid-water trawlers.

Elsewhere in the issue, Ali Grundon Robertson, our environmental guru delves into the peat and explains the importance of peatland restoration, while Alex Garrick-Wright reports on the success of the Imposters’ first ‘away game’ in Edinburgh.

There’s so much to shout about in Shetland at the moment, and with spring just around the corner, we’re keen to keep in touch with you. Give us a shout with any comments or suggestions at sleditor@shetlandtimes.co.uk and remember to use our hashtag for the chance to be featured online or in the magazine #myshetlandlife.

As ever, have a great month and enjoy Shetland Life!

 

Pushing the boat out

We get underway on board the Swan, where we speak to Maggie Adamson and Alfie Page about their passion for sailing. Don’t miss Calum Toogood’s excellent photographs of the young sailors aboard this beautiful vessel. And, if their tales of life on the high seas stir your salty heart, don’t forget that you can book your very own nautical adventure onboard the Swan too – just visit their website.
