West Burra

… one of the smaller Shetland islands
off the west coast not too far from Scalloway …

Burra1512

… a beautiful sunny day for a short walk …

Burra1513

… starting at the very picturesque Meal Beach …

Burra1517

… the weather changes constantly just like the landscape …
I stayed well away from the cliff edges which are steep and a bit slippery

Burra_1526

… but the views are always beautiful …

Burra_1528

… the lighthouse on Fugla Ness …
another post will look at Shetland place names

Burra1521

… pretty pink and grey stones …
porphyritic adamellite with feldspar crystals
which glint in the sunshine
(allegedly)

Burra1529

… the view from the lighthouse
with the village of Hamnavoe on the right
and in the distance in one of the bays
you can just see Scalloway …

Burra1534

… I followed the road helpfully called Roadside …

Burra1533

… through Hamnavoe back to my car …
