Da Sneck Ida Smaalie, Foula

Da Sneck Ida Smaalie is a spectacular crack in the great western cliffs of Foula, formed by a landslide. It is a fine objective for this out-and-back walk through Da Daal - a prominent glen dividing Foula's great rounded hills. There are options to extend the walk into a longer circuit by ascending Da Noup.


Path up Da Daal is boggy in some places, and very indistinct in parts - requiring some navigation. Good grassy ground nearer to Da Sneck.

Public Transport

Foula is served by both air and ferry links from mainland Shetland. Only the air service allows a day visit if not planning to stay on the island overnight, with varying amounts of time between flights on different days. Advance booking is needed as the flights are often full.
