South Ham was a stopping off point in the 19th Century for smacks returning from the Faeroe cod fishery; not to land fish, but contraband. From the shore of South Ham you can continue north around the headland to ascend Strom Ness. From the highest point above the massively stone built croft of Burg you will get a magnificent view north across the Hams.
From the harbour of South Ham cross the hillside to Town Loch and another impressive natural harbour at North Ham. From the North Ham you can take a detour north to ascend the headland overlooking the Ham which opens up a spectacular view south back towards Strom Ness. From here you then follow the shore south past Town Loch and then the obvious track south west through the hills back to the start at Little-Ayre.
