Take Up The Tuskar

'Tuskar' is a word used in Orkney and Shetland for a peat-cutting spade. Go to The Press and Journal for a video of 71-year-old Bruce Wilcock using his skills in Shetland and then for you to move south

to Orkney for Sian Thomas featuring the topic in her Life on a Small Island from which the image above is taken.
