Thanks for this! I am very fond of Shetlands music and sense a similarity with Appalachian fiddle music, especially the fiddle. One of my daughter's classmates had to take the ferry to Aberdeen from The Orkney Islands. That was brutal! I wish I had known this to ask him.

I have been on the ferry from John O'Groats to Orkney. The Pentland Firth is pretty nasty on the best of days but I crossed once in a storm and stayed on deck the whole trip. It was a hoot and I was soaked. I am gong to try your Tab and think about that ride. YHS, David
