Beside Weisdale Voe is the site of ‘Da Aamos Kirk’, named for
the offerings or ‘olmusa’ left by seamen, who made this a place
was the birthplace of John Clunies Ross (1786-1854), a seaman,
explorer and adventurer who is best known for his connection with
the Cocos (Keeling) Islands in the Indian Ocean. He established
a settlement and coconut plantations here and claimed the islands
as his own, ruling them until his death.
