Attractions and Activities
Muckle Roe is a great place to explore: There are a number of walks around the island and you have free access, just close any gates that you open, and take care near the cliffs.
There are a couple of great beaches to visit at the Muckle Ayre (just turn right onto main road and drive to end of the public road then a 5 minute walk to the beach)
Alternately to can go to Ottersayre: turn left at the foot of drive and continue to the North end of the island, before the last house, after parking there is a track on your left that you can walk down about 10 minutes to the nice beach.
The Hams of Roe and the Bjorg are also must see and is a 1 hour walk on a track from the main road. www.walkshetland.com
