Were is Sweening??? My memory has failed me, or I've never been there :-) also, link on page doesn't work now.

roughly HU 458 688 (Sandwick) west of Lunna; OS has it as "Swining" and "Swining Voe" Islandhopper 08:50, 10 April 2007 (MDT)

OK, now I know. I did wonder if it was Swining, it was the spelling that caught me out. This is one where the page spelling is better than the map one. ;-) Should it be changed to map spelling??

On my visits to Vidlin in the 80's, I frequently passed the roadsign pointing to "Swinning", though obviously this has been replaced with a spelling more representative of its local pronunciation. Is "Lerrick" next, I wonder? :-) -- WinstonSmith 09:37, 10 April 2007 (MDT)
