Fishing Boats, Scalloway Harbour
Scalloway’s harbour, situated in a sheltered inlet on the West coast of Shetland Mainland, has made the town an important fishing port for hundreds of years. During the 19th century, cod fishing was an important industry to Scalloway providing employment to many families, some of whom lived on the offshore islands. These islands are now uninhabited.
