Belmont to Lund, Unst

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).

Terrain

Pathless coastal walking, then a rough moorland traverse; very wet in a couple of places, one fence has no stile.

Public Transport

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.
