Super sunny family trip to Mousa


Clare's Mam and Step-Dad are up just now so with a fantastic sunny day we decided to head over to Mousa for the afternoon. It seems half of Shetland decided to do the same, though the ferry was full to the gunwales there was plenty of space on the island.

Beren enjoyed his bird watching, though things are calming down now...




And we heard a storm petrel calling from under a rock!

And we had lunch with a fantastic view while gannets, bonxies and fulmars glided by. Sadly no whales...


And of course visited the broch...


And even got to steam by on the boat on the way home...


Hot, a little sun-burnt, tired and an achy knee, but we had a great time out. Westerwick tomorrow I think...

  1. Great day today wasn't it! We went for walk to Ness of Burgi, glorious weather. Found a message in a bottle launched about 3 weeks ago from.............. Sumburgh Head. Will respond to launcher. Found a few grottie buckies on a small, shell sand beach just before we found the bottle. Lovely time.
