Eshaness is a fabulous place to blow the cobwebs out of your hair. It was June when we visited and the weather was warm and sunny but a bit blowy but not cold. We seemed to have walked for miles along the beautiful clifftops with spectacular scenery at every turn. Highly recommended.

What a stunning coastline, quite windy but that is why the cliffs are so dramatic I guess. If in the area, take an hour or two to stroll the cliffs & experience the thrill of the waves crashing against the coastline. Also saw amazing wildlife & had to help a sheep up who had got stuck on her side. Fabulous place

At first you think "okay they're not very high cliffs" but as you travel around the rest of Shetland you start to appreciate that this place is different. It's always windy, be prepared but we spent hours doing the walk around the peninsula, so easy to get absorbed into nature. We thought that there were places where the route signage could be improved but it didn't spoil our fun.

In January my husband and I moved to Shetland. Because it was winter, initially we didn’t get to sight see too much. I had moved from Los Angeles to Aberdeenshire in 2010 and here we were, moving as far north as Britain can stretch.

My first “sight seeing “ trip was to the amazing Eshaness cliffs. As a hobbyist photographer, this was heaven and I took photos from any aspect in my access.

For ANYONE visiting Shetland,especially the main island, I would wholeheartedly suggest visiting the Eshaness lighthouse areas where the cliffs are. A day trip from Lerwick and so worth the time.

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.

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.

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.

It's easy enough to get to the lighthouse if you are used to single track roads with passing places (and not all tourists are - so be generous) and parking is easy. The cliffs are as everyone says here - very dramatic, but go down to the shallow lochs and there is a ruined broch on Houlland loch worth seeing (you can walk up to it too) - clearly built for the dramatic effect, as the loch itself is and always was shallow. The blowhole is nearby too, and worth a look. You can walk for as long or as short a time as you want - there's no requirement to trek round it all! Toilets are back at the Braewick cafe (long walk there or short drive: recommended for cake and coffee).

Blessed with a warm sunny day and spectacular walk along the cliff top with great views. There is a circular route around the back of Loch Houlland but better to return back along the cliff after visiting the Holes of Scraada and the dilapidated water mills.
