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.
