::Welcome from me also Pett,<br>Hope you weren't offended by striking the 'Wiki lookalike' material, but we've had a few problems with Wiki in the past. Our answer to that was to refrain from using their material completely, although we likely still have some odd bits from the early days when Shetlopedia was starting out and it was an easy way to fill space...<br>Anyway, great to have you aboard, and adding to a subject which we're mostly ignorant about. :-)<br>An interesting point about Trowies, which you may know something about, is that there seems to be more similarities between the behaviour of the Shetland Trow and the Norwegian Nisse. Afraid I've not really mastered reading Norwegian yet, or I might be able to explain what I mean better.<br>Cheers,<br>[[User:Robbie|Robbie]] 11:27, 16 May 2009 (MDT)

Hi Pett,

RE: Your offer to get a photo of the Lunnasting Stone.  That would be really useful.  I don't think it's even on display, it's hidden away in a basement somewhere.  I have contacted them about this, on behalf of the Lunnasting History Group.  They agreed to allow us access to visit it sometime.  They offered a photo which we'd have to pay for; but we would not have permission to use it on a website.  I'll dig out the email and let you know where it is.  I believe it takes a little bit of time to arrange the visit, but if you were able to then that would be excellent.  Thanks you.
