Mousa - the broch and RSPB reserve
The island of Mousa - off the east coast of Shetland's mainland is famed for its spectacular iron age broch - the most complete and best preserved of all such structures. The whole experience of taking the boat over and exploring the island - an RSPB reserve - on foot is a magical one; one of Shetland's finest excursions.
Grazing land, some boggy areas, narrow steps and restricted access to the broch itself.
Ferry to Mousa from Sandsayre on Shetland mainland; Sandwick Central is the nearest bus stop.
