The Thief's House Cave - Fitful Head, Shetland

A short distance north west and below the Fitful Head trig point there is a grassy terrace with steep rocky ground below, marked on the OS map as the “Thief’s House (Cave)”. This is the area of the cave that according to the Canmore database entry was described by Sir Walter Scott in ‘The Pirate’ as the residence of “Norma of the Fitful Head”.
