Burnt Mound / Fulacht Fia


Visited 13.6.12

On the left of the A970, just north of Skelberry, north Shetland

I had a quick look at the mound as we headed up to Isbister – the furthest north we would be travelling on our holiday.

A grass covered mound right next to the road.
It appears to have been dug into?

Canmore states:
‘A large horseshoe-shaped burnt mound, measuring 19m x 15m transversely and 2.1m maximum height’.
