We visited in October. The lighthouse was the only sign of life other than bird and animal life (lambs). We were the only ones there. We didn't venture too close to the cliffs as the wind was at our backs and forceful. Warning signs are...More

You park at the lighthouse and can walk either way - both are equally stunning! There is no path as such, you just wander along the cliff side and take in the scenery. It is so grand it makes you feel very small!

We were lucky to have high seas and blue skies for our visit. We walked along quite a bit, with our guide constantly warning us to stay away from the edge which is quite eroded. There aren’t many seabirds at this time of year but...More

We parked near the lighthouse and carefully walked along the cliffs to see the waves crashing. Try to arrive on a late afternoon to get the best light. A bit harrowing for those with vertigo or fear of heights but you can still get some...More

What a wild experience! High cliffs and strong winds that let you look down on seagulls below you - how often does that happen? Well worth the trip out to the wild coast.

Eshaness Cliffs are amazing. Yes, definitely amazing. We parked next to the lighthouse and set off to the left (South) along the clifftops. We were lucky with the weather - It was a gorgeous day. The sea wasn't calm, which added this special wild touch...More

Everyone had been saying about the views from Eshaness since I arrived on Shetland and I was not disappointed. The cliffs are breath taking and the views....its like standing on the edge of the world. Bird lift fills the cliffs. We even spotted puffins. The...More

We delayed viewing the lighthouse until after our cliff walk taking in the Hols of Scraada , Grind o da Navir, the Loch of Houlland and the Broch. It is an interesting walk with many different cliff features to take in along the way: despite...More

Rugged dramatic cliffs - don't get too near the edge! We had just been to Ireland and visited the Cliffs of Moher, and this felt very much like that on a tad smaller scale. Beautiful, awe-inspiring, take a long nature hike, be amazed.
