Your stories


As part of this project, we're trying to gather together as much information about the people of Fair Isle as possible. Not all facts and figures are written down, so oral history is extremely important. 


That means we need your stories! 


If you live on Fair Isle, if your relatives came from Fair Isle, or if you know people who came from Fair Isle, please do get in touch. All contact is treated confidentially, however, if you would like to share your stories with others, we can add it to the collection below. All stories remain the copyright of the writer.
