Yes, most people who visit Funzie for the first time pronounce it Funzy whereas it should be pronounced Finny.


#725

I would [shuffles papers and looks away from camera] never do that.


#726

Not sure if Cal Mac go as far up as the Fetlar route, but this pic from a photographer I follow on the west coast is worth seeing…

No, the only service up here is run by Northlink Ferries. One a day, Lerwick to Aberdeen. Three days a week they go/come via Orkney.
