Hi Pett,

Welcome to Shetlopedia and thanks for your edits so far. We have to be careful not to copy information from other websites, that's why the copied text from Wikipedia was removed. If you need any help or advice then please feel free to ask. Either on the talk pages, or on the forums

I have information about the Lunnasting Stone, though we don't have a picture for it, and it's hidden away in a museum in Edinburgh. I'm hoping to get a photo sometime but I'll have to visit the museum first and arrange a viewing.

What's your location? Are you in Shetland? Let us know so we can add a Shetland (or other) flag to your user page.

All the best, Gary

Thanks! I'm not in Shetland just now, I'm living and working in Edinburgh. Do you want me to try and get a picture of the Lunnasting Stone? (I can't remember seeing it)--Pett 10:53, 16 May 2009 (MDT)
Welcome from me also Pett,
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...
Anyway, great to have you aboard, and adding to a subject which we're mostly ignorant about. :-)
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 Nise. Afraid I've not really mastered reading Norwegian yet, or I might be able to explain what I mean better.
