Violin or Fiddle?
This instrument has been in the family for over ninety years and may have originated in Shetland (or perhaps Leith). It belonged to and was played by my mother's father. Unfortunately no one in our house can play, although my mother reckons she could have a good go at it given a bit of time and practice as she could get a tune out of it in the past.
