Walls, Shetland
Coordinates: 60°14′N 1°34′W / 60.23°N 1.56°W
Walls, known locally as Waas, (Old Norse: Vagar = "Sheltered Bays" (voes) - the Ordnance Survey added the "ll" as they thought it was a corruption of "walls". Cf Vágar and Vágur in the Faroe Islands), is a settlement on the south side of West Mainland, Shetland Islands, at the head of Vaila Sound and sheltered even from southerly storms by the islands of Linga and Vaila.
A little to the east of the centre of the village is the marina, making this a popular base for leisure sailors. The fishing vessels that are still based in Walls tend to use the pier a few hundred yards along the west side of Vaila Sound. This is also the terminus for the ferry service to the island of Foula, some distance out into the Atlantic from Shetland's Mainland.
Today it is home to the dialect children's writer Iris Sandison, also secretary to the local history group.
Waas has long been famed for its annual Agricultural Show. A short film of 'da Waas Show' in the early 60s, by the late Dr. Albert Hunter, is available at the link below.
