Returning to Wester Skeld take the minor road east to the settlement of Easter Skeld. Downhill at the marina there is a caravan and camp site with public toilets. There is a bird hide nearby where you can watch birds and seals in the bay. Easter Skeld is also the location of one of Shetland Amenity Trust’s network of Camping Böds (camping barns).
From Skeld marina there is a short steep climb past the cemetery to the side road to the right that takes a loop of 2 miles (3km) through Reawick. The climb up and around the Ward of Reawick is rewarded by great views across Skelda Voe that opens out to the east to give more splendid views across the many small islands to the Burra isles and Mainland. Reawick is a small settlement above a quiet bay with a beach of strikingly pink sand.
The loop rejoins the B9071 with a right turn for a long run of 5.5 miles (9km) over a relatively straight single track road with few climbs. The road follows the west shore of Garderhouse Voe with fine views across to Fora Ness and Sand and to the green swath of salt marsh to the Loch of Semblister. The route joins the A971 for a left turn and a 5 mile (8km) ride to Walls.
