The star of this half-day tour is Shetland’s rugged north-west coast. We’ll take you on a driving tour north to Eshaness Cliffs, a stretch of coastline that offers some of the best views on the island. Here you may be very lucky enough to spot an eagle or peregrines on the 300 million year old cliffs, which over time have been shaped by the crashing ocean. You’ll get a photo stop here, too, so there’ll be plenty of time to take in the panorama. Even the drive to and from Eshaness is spectacular – you’ll see the red granite bluffs of Magnus Bay, the loch-side village of Voe, and Mavis Grind, a strip of land where the North Sea and Atlantic almost touch. But a Shetland tour wouldn’t be complete without seeing a ruin, so there’s also a chance to see turreted Scalloway Castle. It dominates Scalloway’s seafront, a harbour town surrounded by heather-covered hills. - its picture worthy stuff.
