One of more popular places in Shetland. Large car park near the light house. Park up, then just follow the coastline, though keep away from the edge! Loads of scenery to see and photograph.

Enjoyed the cliff views...in light rain and in sodden ground conditions. It’s a gentle drive to find the lighthouse...which is marked private. Easy parking and a short walk around cliff top and the top of the gully towards the north side. Would suit a longer walk along the cliffs in better weather conditions.

We drove to the cliffs in our rental from Lerwick. It was easy to find, good signposting along the way. The scenery along the way is spectacular but when you get to the cliffs it is something else! We were there in winter so the winds were icy and strong...but what a view and what a way to see nature in all its glory! Wonderful location for strolling and taking fantastic photos. Be careful not to go to close to the edge as the area is open with no barriers. It is raw nature ... the best! If you are lucky to drive there is loads to see along the way.. rolling green hills, small villages and old abandoned croft houses, sheep, peat bogs and of course Shetland ponies! We had a great day out and would do it again. It must be even more beautiful in the warmer months.

Well worth the visit to see the cliffs along the shoreline with the ocean crashing on the rocks. Simple beautiful and wonderful photography opportunities here. Very, very windy the day we visited so if you have hair that can get into your face, tie it back before you even get out of your vehicle!! Was careful not to get too close to edge of cliffs. Step carefully as plenty of ridges on the grassy areas. Hiking boots are handy on this turf. Great stop!

This was our first walk/hike on a recent visit to Shetland, and it was a great "first encounter" with the Shetland coastal scenery. We walked along the coast as far as Croo Loch--we weren't the only walkers, but this was far enough to get beyond the range of groups from cruise ship tour buses and experience the remote feel of the place. On the walk back we turned inland to take in Houlland Loch and the Holes of Scraada, giving diversity to the ~3 hr RT walk (time without rushing). The walking isn't overly overly strenuous, though you'll want sturdy walking shoes with good tread, and those who are nervous about heights may find the clifftop views a bit unsettling.
