Isleburgh chambered cairn from Mavis Grind

Mainland Shetland is almost divided in two at Mavis Grind, with only a narrow neck of land joining the northermost part of the island - Northmavine - to the rest of Shetland. This short walk starts from the neck and visits a fine example of a heel-shaped chambered cairn.


Tracks, pathless sections on steeper grassy ground, all fences have stiles.
