Shetland - West Mainland

Shetland Islands, Scotland

Hilly - New

Starting at Walls in West Mainland we take a beautiful ride on the lonely empty, narrow roads passing Bridge of Walls, Bixter Voe and The Firth climbing the Scord of Sound to get brief views of Weisdale Voe where we will follow its shores onto Whiteness Voe and Tingwall Airport (note the small eight seater taking off for Fair Isle). Past Veensgarth the roads get busier as traffic heads into Shetland’s principle town, Lerwick (population of 7,500), but the views of the town, its fishing boats and the Isle of Bressay beyond are well worth it as we drop down from Gremista Hill to finish at Victoria Pier with its bustling yachts and lifeboat.
