Lerwick Shetland Isles

This is from one of the piers in Lerwick facing south. The buildings on the right are called Lodberries. This word comes from Old Norse meaning a place where boats can come alongside. These buildings were built in 18th century and are still inhabited today. The wind can be seen on water. It was a very windy day with gale force winds which nearly landed me in the sea.
