Whale Island

The population of Whalsay, Shetland, has increased steadily over the years - with over a thousand living on the so-called 'Bonnie Island'. Its real name derived from 'Whale Island' and the large creatures associated with it have now been replaced with capacious fishing vessels. Here in Symbister, the Pier House is linked with the once thriving and extensive Hanseatic League. Full details are to be found on the Undiscovered Scotland website.
