Gloup Voe and Scordaback, Yell
Traverse the steep high slopes of the dramatic inlet of Gloup Voe to reach the head of the sea loch and remains of an old fishing haaf, the route climbs over rough moorland to reach the small summit viewpoint of Scordaback - an easier route is to return along the Gloup. The route can be done as an extension of the Sands of Breckon route to make a much longer walk.
Clear but narrow path on very steep, grassy slope, pathless heather moorland, navigation skills needed.
None to start.
Small parking area on track to Gloup memorial.
