The B9081 takes you from Mid Yell to join the A968 at the head of the voe. Heading north on the A968 through Camb the route makes a long climb up Basta Hill. From the top of Basta Hill there are great views over Basta Voe, Burra Ness and beyond to Fetlar and Unst. There is now a long downhill past Colvister to the bridge at the head of Basta Voe followed by a climb up again to Sellafirth with views south-east towards Hascosay. The road dips down through Sellafirth and up again as it swings north-east towards Gutcher.
At Gutcher turn left for 4.5 miles of the single-track B9082/B9083 that takes you through Cullivoe to Brough. There are some short steep descents and climbs on this part of the route but you are rewarded by fine views across the sound to Unst and the cliffs of the Blue Mull.
