From The Far Haaf to The Sma' Half

Life on the Shetland Isles in the 19th century was harsh and unforgiving. Crippling tenancy agreements, poor living conditions and ferocious weather forced many families to wave goodbye to their children who left in search of a better way of life on the mainland.

This book tells the story of one such family. It offers a fascinating insight into the lives of Shetlanders through the ages. From humble beginnings in subsistence crafting, the family grows into a veritable business success with their own retail chain and distillery.

Embodying a wealth of commercial wisdom. The tale begins in Shetland, and after witnessing ground breaking development in the distilling and retail worlds, returns full circle for the building of Shetland’s first distillery.
