Aister 'oo' Froad

The Shetland word for Froth. 
When the hill burns come rushing down the valleys,
the force of the water creates a froth. 
The peerie nooks and inlets along the way create a
still area for the froth to congregate - swirl and twirl!  
The burn hill water is browny colour, so the white froth is
tinged with this orangey, brown colour.
