Urie Ness, Fetlar

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.

Terrain

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

Public Transport

Hamars Ness is the main ferry terminal on Fetlar, and is served by daily ferries from both Yell and Unst.
