This short walk from Fetlar's ferry terminal follows the soggy coastline out to Urie Ness and its ruins. This is a good area to look for otters, before the route continues by climbing inland to reach the further haunting ruins at Urie itself - a reminder of the Highland Clearances which swept the island.


Coastal and grassy walking, boggy in parts. There are stiles (and marker arrows) over all fences.
