Papa Stour Circular
Papa Stour (below) and its adjacent islets of Lyra Skerry and Fogla Skerry (above) provide a fascinating location for a well-documented walk in a series featuring Shetland.
Geos, voes, cliffs, natural arches, a kirk, airstrip, former fish curing station and leper colony are among many features that surprise and delight on the ten-mile walk for which eight hours should be allowed.
The places to start are WalkShetland and then, after the ferry from West Burrafirth, the waiting room and visitors' centre above.
