Follow the B8076 east to to the road junction at the head of Firths Voe where it meets the eastern section of route 1. Fiths Voe is the landfall of two North Sea oil pipelines and the exit point for a gas pipeline to the Scottish Mainland. From here there is a shorter uphill climb around a steep and sharp bend then a slow descent to the ferry terminal at Toft.
Arriving in Ulsta on Yell the road splits just beyond the shop giving you a choice between east and west coast routes. The west coast route on the A968 is on the main road and more direct. We recommend the single-track B9081 to the east, following the signs to Burravoe then onward to Mid Yell. This route is approximately 3 miles (5km) longer but is a more leisurely ride, as the twists and turns of the narrow roads make for more interesyting cycling than than the wider and straighter A968. You might want to chose the the alternative west coast route on the return journey. The day ride around South Yell includes more details of the west coast route .
The local Museum and Exhibition Centre at Burravoe is housed in the Old Haa which dates from 1672 and includes a tearoom, gallery and craft shop. It houses a permanent display of material depicting the history of Yell and you can relax in its garden and admire a series of stone figures built in the style of Inuit 'inuksuit’ inspired by Geopark Shetland.
