Fealy Dyke

Also known as a feely or feelie dyke from the Shetland word feal (turf), it is an earthen wall designed to separate the crofts from the common grazing areas. They are found extensively throughout Shetland.

But did you know that Fealy is also a surname, though only 1,110 people in the world share it? The most famous may have been Maude Fealy.
