Intercounty sports events are a chance for tournaments between schools. This film shows pupils travelling to the island of Yell to play volleyball (girls) and football (boys). Probably filmed in the 1970s.

Film-maker: Bertie Mowat

Donated by Eric Erasmuson.

Sports competitions happen across Shetland, just as they do elsewhere. Sometimes however, geeting to a fixture involves a variety of transport options.
