New for Auld
Here is the Auld Haa Guest House on Fair Isle. The 'Haa' on Shetland traditionally refers to the house of a laird and so it would customarily have had innovations incorporated within its construction. Perhaps the old / auld ways persist on some remoter islands and glens, but BT has counted almost a third of a million wi-fi hotspots in Scotland. The Highlands have some 26,700 and the Western Isles 2,370. This accommodation on an island famed for its birds certainly has its wireless internet connections.
Scottish Islands Explorer - keen to connect, particularly as it started on Fair Isle.
