Shetland Hamefarin 2010

From Visit Scotland:

In June this year, Shetland will host a 'Hamefarin' welcoming Shetlanders from all around the world back to their home islands. The ceremonial return of those of Shetland extraction offers an opportunity for Hamefarers to reforge lost connections, enjoy the culture and heritage of Shetland and enjoy a very special holiday. Hamefarers are expected from as far afield as Australasia and North America and for many, the visit to the land of their forebears will be for the first time.

Shetland's Hamefarin will be from June 14th - 26th. A website outlining the programme of events is available at
