The bells! The bells!

In this modern age of technology and mobile communications and all things electronic, it is lovely to have some good, old-fashioned sounds. Today Shetland Arts have been with us, uploading the sound files of bells that have been rung across the UK to celebrate the start of the Olympics. What a lovely gentle idea, at least here in Shetland. The group have been in Unst where Belle Spence and 40 others gathered on Skaw Beach to take part in the nationwide festivities.
