Lunna Kirk is overlooked by Lunna House, the 17th Century mansion of the Hunter family. They also built a nearby watchtower to spy on tenants fishing offshore and to watch out for the Customs as the Hunters, like many Shetland landowners, were smugglers. For a short time in WW2 Lunna House was base for the clandestine Shetland Bus operation which used fishing boats to smuggle spies, saboteurs, radios, ammunition and explosives into German occupied Norway and brought back refugees.
The route continues a further 1.5 miles (2.5km) to another secluded bay and natural harbour jetty at Boatsroom Voe. Hamnavoe, just above the natural sand-bar on the east side of the voe, is home to Böd Ayre Products that manufacture a range of organic products from harvested seaweed.
