The Island on the Edge of the World

|

The Foula Island stands on the edge of the world. This island is the part of the archipelago of the Shetland Islands of Scotland. But it is closer to Norway than to the Scottish capital Edinburgh. That’s why the Foula community has a strong attraction to the Norse tradition. Even they are very used to with Norwegian special festivities, music, folklore and they celebrate Christmas and New Year to follow the old Julian calendar still now. The population of this Island is only 30. To see a doctor, they have to travel 20 miles by sea or by air.
