The Shetland Rural Islands Maritime Heritage Asset Atlas Project is a exciting new project that has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project aims to look at the both the physical and intangible maritime heritage found in Fair Isle, Foula, Papa Stour and Skerries over the next few months. There will be opportunities to get out to the islands to do survey work, collect and record peoples stories and memories and there will be workshops offering the opportunity to learn and improve skills in recording heritage, photography and archival research.
The end goal of the project is to create an asset atlas that details some of the physical structures that have been recorded and the linked intangible heritage. The book will be available for free online or in print for a small price. Any data collected will be available online for anybody to use and will be given to the Shetland Museum and Archives as well.
