Up-Helly-A’ sparks cheer in Northmavine

Tonight’s (Friday) Northmavine Up-Helly-A’ has been hotly anticipated by guizers and residents alike for three years and the time finally arrived.

Guizer Jarl Robin SInclair and his Jarl’s Squad lead 12 other squads in a procession which finished with the burning of the galley, Sjøorm, at the burning site at the loch at Urafirth.

Photographer Sophie Whitehead caught snaps of the action.
