From Dale of Walls the route is mostly flat and straight for 2.5 miles (4km) along the road that follows the burn north-east to join the A971 at Stanevatstoe Loch. This road through the Dale was built as recently as about 1980, but too late to stop the depopulation of this scenic valley.
A right turn on to the A971 is the start of a route back to Walls with very many bends and short climbs that makes for a great ride but the road is a fairly quiet one with a good suface. This 3 mile (5km) section to the junction with the side road leading to Walls is through some of most outstanding heather covered peat-land in Shetland; you will see many traditional peat cuttings by the roadside. In late summer the hills in this area turn a deep purple when the heather blooms.
