Have you met Peat?

I am fascinated by Peat?

For years women had the back-breaking task of walking to collect peat in a Kishie, at the same time knitting to make ends meet.

The sliced landscape is amazing.

Cutting peat is a precision job.

It is left to dry out for about 6 weeks.

Shetland has layer upon layer of peat scars.
