Fair Isle

Fair Isle (From Old Norse frioar-øy) is technically part of the Shetland Islands, in real life it is closer to North Ronaldsay island which is part of the Orkney Islands.

Fair Isle has been occupied since the Bronze Age, itself remarkable due to the sheer lack of raw materials on this tiny island.
