The White Wife of Otterswick is one of Shetland's more unusual and moving memorials - the figurehead of the German ship Bohus which sank in a storm off the coastline here, and which now commemorates the lives of four of the crew who were lost. The straightforward coast walk continues around the Ness of Queyron before returning to the start along a minor road - watch out for the otters for which this is prime habitat, and for porpoises swimming offshore.
Well signed path to the White Wife. Continuation around the headland is a little rough and boggy in places; all fences have stiles. Return along quiet minor road.
Bus to Aywick.
