Keep to the coastline and walk around the Geo of Gardins and follow the coast around the Ness. The central area of the ness can be pretty boggy, even in summer therefore it’s advisable to stick to the coastline. This is a great area for spotting otters at the sea shore. There is usually evidence of otters’ spraint at Whal Wick. This is a great spot for a picnic and if you stop a while you may spot an otter or two. In summer there are numerous tirrick’s (artic tern’s) nests near the shore.
Continue around the Ness until you are opposite Burravoe. Here you can take in excellent views of the township of Burravoe. In particular note the Manor House, a listed building. The design of this house is very unusual, being a late example of a merchant haa with a remarkably shallow roof that appears to have been tarred like later croft houses in Shetland.
In the summer the shore is home to many wading birds including; whaaps (curlew), shalders (oystercatchers), plivvers (plovers) and ebbsleepers (dunlin).
You can then join the grassy road which will take you back to the head of Burravoe where you will find a derelict building which was a Methodist Chapel and Chapel House built in 1827.
