Shetlands Scenery

Explore Shetland.


Eshaness cliffs caught here on my phone camera boasts one of the highest energy coastlines in the world. The Eshaness peninsula also tells a fascinating story of a long extinct volcano and a very different past environment and after a short spectacular walk around the cliffs you see today which cut right through the flank of what was the Eshaness volcano on a nice day you can almost go back in time.



Lerwick is the capital, main town of Shetland. It has a population of about 7,500 residents. Here I snapped a photo arriving in Lerwick on the Northlink ferry just passing the Lodberries the house used for the outside footage in the TV series 'Shetland', in which it is the home of fictional detective Jimmy Perez, created by Ann Cleeves.




Many say West is best and for sunsets you sometimes cant get better than looking over towards the beautiful Island of Foula.  The Island is 15 nautical miles (28 kilometres) west of  Walls in Shetland. The island is about  4 by 6 kilometres. It rises from low broken cliffs in the east to precipitous 490–1,200 ft cliffs in the west. The island has five peaks, rising to 1,371 ft at the Sneug and 376 m 1,234 ft at the Kame. At the north end is Gaada Stack and towards the south-west is Da Sneck Ida Smaalie, a spectacular 30 m deep and 2 m wide crack in the cliffs.


St Ninian's Isle is a small Island connected by the largest tombolo in the UK if not Europe. In the summer the tombolo is above sea level and accessible to walkers as is the winter months but with Shetlands diverse weather and high tides can make crossing a little bit more hair raising. The South Mainland has many beautiful sandy beaches and some of the most spectacular iron age sites including the island of Mousa where Standing 13m high is Scotland's most impressive and best surviving Iron Age tower or broch which we now know were built in Shetland around 400-200BC and not forgetting to mention Old Scatness and Jarlshof sites.
