Scalloway Fire Festival 2011 - Day Pictures

A few pics during the day of the 2011 Scalloway Fire Festival. The Galley was named Rammestein after the German Band & the Guizer Jarl was Neil Ward, representing Jarl Sweyn Forkbeard. Unfortunately the Jarl Squad did not have their own song.

  1. As always, brilliant pictures. THANKS!!!!
    The little Viking with the dummy teat in his mouth in that last picture has got to be the cutest/youngest Viking I've ever seen.

    And, just for interest. Would I be right in saying that some of the squad support Aberdeen football club?? lol...

    Thanks again.

  2. You could be right about the Aberdeen support there Robbie - & the Jarls is a welder & he likes the group Rammestien
