Ness of Trebister

After a long wait and and organising a friend to look after Beren it was time for The Desolation of Smaug at Mareel, Woo Hoo! We were cooking up a hearty brunch complete with Doreen's Back Pudding freshly sent from home when the phone rang... the bloody film was cancelled due to a technical fault!!!

We'll it was a decent day so we decided to make the most of it with a couple of hours around the Ness of Trebister between Sound and Gulberwick. Parking at Quoys we set of along the coast...


First stop was The Grottie Buckie beach, a popular local beach and, as you can tell from the name, known for it's grottie buckies...


  




 After a search for a few shells, watching a couple of seals and taking photos we carried on around the coast. An easy walk but pretty soggy under foot today...


The Ness of Sound and Bressay...


The Rippacks at the end of the ness were a bit wild. The wind was icy enough without the cold spray from the sea...


From the more sheltered side of the Rippacks...


Heading back inland now with Gulberwick in the distance...


And the odd little gem along the way...


We walked nearly to the old cemetery before heading up and over the hill back to Sound. It was really cold and windy on top, but the view was excellent. Here's Lerwick and the Ness of Sound from Heog Berg...


A great walk on a great day as the sun starts to return  for the summer!
