Sneugans


(Da Sneugans)

A boggy upland in the centre of the island of Whalsay in Shetland, Sneugans (or Da Sneugans) rises to just beyond 80m (262 feet) in height to the northwest of the Loch of Livister and a mile (1.5 km) northeast of Symbister. The poet Hugh MacDiarmid (1892 - 1978) had a peat bank here which he cut for fuel while he lived at nearby Sodom during the 1930s.
