Scalloway and Bur Wick

Scalloway - with its impressive ruined castle - was the ancient capital of Shetland. This circular walk heads round the rough coastline to the west of the town to the bay of Bur Wick before returning via a hill track.


Roads and tracks for much of the route, but very rough pathless coastal section from Point of the Pund to Bur Wick.
