Caain da Noosts Family Activities  

Regretfully, as a consequence of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we suspended all face-to-face community engagement activity. However, we invited you to take part in our new, online, community project, Caain da Noosts, which you responded to amazingly, contributing over 150 new site records. During lockdown, we also created a downloadable family activity pack to go with it! Preview the family activity pack here or download it below: 

Archaeological Reports


We recorded this noost at Shoreside, Bridge of Walls, during the summer of 2019 ahead of its demolition to make way for a boat shed. The report has been submitted to the Shetland Historic Environment Record, held by the Shetland Amenity Trust in Lerwick, and is available to read and download here. It covers both the structure of the noost and our archival research associated with it. 

We have uploaded this as an open-access document, if you find it useful then please buy us a coffee and support our work.
