Island of Mousa, Shetland

This is a small uninhabited island, which mainly serves as a nature reserve. There you can also find the Broch of Mousa, which is preserved almost in its entirety. The Mousa Boat takes you across for a few hours from April to September, before the stormy winter season begins. We were able to watch birds and seals from the distance and enjoyed the circular walk along the beautiful cliffs before the boat took us back to the mainland of Shetland. 

Here you can see Mousa Broch up close.
