When I visited Finstown in the 1970's I stayed at Smithy Cottage with the Scott family. This photo show a little Island on the right. I remember the farmer who lived there rowing across to it in a little boat, often very intoxicated! Think his name was Jim but not sure. He used to dive for scallops with my then boyfriend Raymond Scott. Ray did this as a summer job when he was home from college.

[Island is the Holm of Grimbister - Steven]
