Thule

by Micha F. Lindemans
In Classical myth, the legendary island situated in the extreme north sea. It was regarded as the northernmost, or extreme point of the earth (Ultima Thule).

The name of the island Foula (positioned in the North Atlantic near the Shetland Islands) is derived from Thule. This is because the first inhabitants believed that the island was the mythical Thule.
