Cash in Sandsound
Marine scientists have mislaid two satellite tracking devices on Shetland's west-side. They were measuring the currents in the Fair Isle gap, but became caught up and washed off-course in the recent gales. The details of their approximate whereabouts - the hard-to-access beaches of Sandaound (above) - and the rewards offered for the beacons, are featured in a Shetland Newsitem.
