Böd (booth) is an old Shetland word whose meanings include trading post or warehouse, as in the 16th-century Bremen Böd on Whalsay, and also store for fishing gear. Camping böds are historic buildings offering basic accommodation for visitors.
There are eight million seabirds around Britain. One million of them are around Shetland. For sheer spectacle, what else needs be said.
