Lerwick, Shetland Islands, Scotland.
Various night shots of Guizers (men dressed as Vikings) marching along the coast and carrying flaming torches in the historic ceremony of 'Up Helly Aa' which celebrates the end of winter. We see Guizers flanking Viking ship which some of them are pushing. They throw burning torches into the Viking ship and we see the ship blazing away. Guizer Jarl leads the others into a hall - they walk in with swords raised. Guizer Jarl leading three cheers.
