Scrae Field

Clare and I were lucky enough to have the chance of a decent walk this morning as Beren had stayed over at his mates. It was pretty icy and,with the wind, a little nippy, but we set off for an 11km walk via Bersa Hill, Scrae Field, Sundibanks and the Hill of Easter Houll.

Looking north from Bersa Hill (~170m) ...


The views on these ridges are great, but with the low sun it was hard to see where were going as we headed south never mind take photos.

Looking down on Sundibanks, Trondra and Scalloway...


A rare 'selfie' near the White Stone of Toufield (182m). By the way I've no idea where the white stone is...


And the high point of the walk at Scrae Field (216m)...


And a great view over towards Bressay...


Not far from the summit are the remains of an old wartime radio station I visited some time ago. It was cold and there was little shelter so we didn't hang about. A quick bite to eat and off we went...


Looking back up to Scrae Field and the radio station from the Clift Sound side of the hills...


The Clift Sound looking north...


And looking south...


What a lovely day!
