The Mousa experience is really worthwhile. Boat crew are very personable and informative - particularly on the return journey when some time is taken to explain bird life, other broch's in the area, some history of settlement, etc. The walk around Mousa Island is delightful....More

There is only one complete broch in the world and it's on the bonny island of Mousa, a 15 minute sailing on The Mousa Boat, the "Solan". Have a look round the pierhead building at the artifacts, history, photographs and a boat before boarding via...More
