A “seter” is the same a British shielding and was used for the same purpose here in Norway as it was in Britain. Very few farmers move their cattle to a “seter” in the summer these days.

A shieling (Scottish Gaelic: àirigh, Cornish: havos), also spelt sheiling, shealing and sheeling, is a hut, or collection of huts, once common in a wild or lonely place in the hills and mountains of Scotland and northern England. The word also refers to a mountain pasture used for the grazing of cattle in summer.
