Guddicks
Amy Lightfoot and Laurie Goodlad
Guddick = a riddle

Step back in time and imagine dark winter nights with generations of young and old gathered around the peat fire, telling tales and “laying up guddicks” to challenge and entertain. These guddicks have been passed down through the generations and are preserved and reproduced here. They will evoke memories and along with over 90 original woodcut images offer a compelling and beautiful insight into Shetland’s past.
