Scene at Sumburgh Airfield at Shetland Museum & Archives in Shetland

In this episode, we’ll be visiting Scene at Sumburgh Airfield (painted in 1989 and signed Edmund Miller) at the Shetland Museum & Archives in Shetland. Welcome to Art, Culture & Books with me, Anthony King.

Sumburgh Airport is the main airport serving Shetland in Scotland. This painting commemorates it’s first air service in 1936. Venturing up to the Shetland Isles was quite the wild ride! My journey kicked off with a ferry ride from Aberdeen, lasting a solid 12-13 hours – talk about an adventure! Despite the lengthy voyage, it was filled with memorable moments. Upon reaching Shetland, one spot not to miss is the Shetland Museum & Archives. The staff there were fantastic, adding to the charm of the experience. And let me tell you, the warmth and hospitality of the Shetland folks were unparalleled. It’s a unique blend of Scotland and Scandinavia, but more on that in a later video.
