About Skigersta

The village of Skigersta was created from farmland during the early 19th century to provide housing for the crews of some of the long-line fishermen who worked from the nearby harbour. Although this industry has long since disappeared, local fishing and sailing enthusiasts are working to ensure the long term future of the harbour facilities at Skigersta.
