Outstanding Walking

There are many reasons why walking in Unst, Shetland, is so attractive. There are numerous vistas, more Viking sites than in any comparable area of Europe, 420 million years of geological evolution, 60 miles of coastline, 10 beaches and 19 hours of daylight per day at around Midsummer. Go to Walkers are Welcome and see for yourself why some of the 650 residents of the island have chosen to live there. Look at Skaw Beach below and up to Saxa Vord (above) for here are two locations with pulling power.
