This was the only site I had on my 3 week itinerary that I failed to visit.
Due to the times of the sailings I didn’t have chance for a daytime visit so I thought I would go on one of the shorter evening sailings.
We arrived at booking centre only to discover that the evening sailings only operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays! (My fault for not checking in advance)
I therefore had no option but to settle for a very far of view.
On a clear day like today the Broch is actually quite easy to see on the Mousa. Shoreline.
It certainly gives as idea of how it must have looked along the coast when all the Brochs were in use – very impressive sight!
I hope to return to the wonderful Shetland Islands one day – this will be at the top of my ‘hit list’!
