Brekka Lodge Blog



Shetland has exported a range of famous products for centuries: wool, lamb and knitwear, fish, ponies and in more recent years, oil. But by far the most important, but perhaps less obvious of these, is people. You will find Shetlanders all over the world and if you are interested in tracing your Shetland ancestors there are many people who are willing to help you. The blog picture is me, my parents and siblings. My Dad was a Shetlander, met my Mum while working in the Borders of Scotland in the late 1960s. After marrying and having the boys my parents moved back to Shetland where my sister and I were born. Very grateful for our heritage and to be brought up in such a kind, lovely and free enviornment.
