Day Thirteen

Today we drove to the west coast, towards Sandness. The views, as always, were fabulous.

There are abandoned, ruined crofts all over the island, some dating from the time of ‘the clearances’ in the 1800s when landowners threw the crofters out to put sheep on the land.
The scenery constantly amazes.
We stopped at West Melby beach and did some seal watching.
Can you see the seal?
Here it is!
From there we drove South.
The roads are empty.
We stopped at Minn Beach

Beautiful, but cold.
Andy had a lovely swim. I did go in but it was too cold.

Today is our last night on the Shetlands, but as our ferry isn’t until 5.30pm tomorrow we will have some time on the island. One more place we want to visit. Find out where it is tomorrow.

  1. Andy, you are very brave! I don’t think I would have risked even my big toe! Enjoy your last day, where next?
