This linear walk starts at the Belmont ferry terminal on Unst. It heads to the remains of a coastal broch before a rough moorland section visiting an abandoned settlement and another broch site. From the latter it descends to reach the beautifully situated Lund church, at the southern end of a sandy beach. A track then leads to a minor road, passing a fine standing stone. The walk as described ends at the junction beyond - either pre-arrange a lift from here, return via the outward route (doubling the time and distance given), or walk a further 1km to meet a bus on the A968 if the timetable permits (infrequent service).
Pathless coastal walking, then a rough moorland traverse; very wet in a couple of places, one fence has no stile.
Belmont ferry terminal is served by bus, but there is no public transport to Lund at the end of the walk - nearest bus at the main road 1km from the end as described.
