Peerie Spiggie Beach

In Shetland's South Mainland, one of the most beautiful corners of the area is Peerie Spiggie, also known as Peerie Voe, a quite narrow inlet that faces west into the Atlantic Ocean. The beach itself is a mixture of sand and shingle but the view from it, distinguished by some very picturesque rock formations, is one of the most celebrated in Shetland. It’s an ideal place for a picnic, or indeed for a summer evening’s contemplation as the sun sinks into the sea just beyond the rugged, outlying skerries.
