The headland (Ness) of Strandburgh (Strandibrough) is surrounded by a myriad of skerries, sea stacks, caves and arches. Inner Brough is accessed through the ruins of a small building and past hollows and embankments. Outer Brough is an inaccessible sea stack and the cliffs above it should be approached with care.
Strandibrough takes its name from the crofting ‘toonship’ of Strand but there is no evidence of an Iron Age broch that the name suggests. A number of buildings have been recognised on both Inner and Outer Brough. The Strandibrough complex of ruins was the largest Norse monastic cliff top settlement in Shetland. On Outer Brough small structures can be seen near the summit and on the eastern slope,
Head south from Inner Brough along the east coast passing the Head of Cumla then look back to view the natural arches. From the Head of Holsta you can ascend Baa-neap, which is an excellent viewpoint. The descent will take you past Vedders Geo then Heilinabretta where the Danish frigate ‘Wendell’ was wrecked in 1737.
