St Ninian’s Isle

"Pesky humans disturbing our peace again!"
“Pesky humans disturbing our peace again!”

St Ninian’s Isle is connected to Mainland Shetland by a tombolo (isthmus) of sand formed by wave action from opposing directions. Once on the island, it’s a 3-mile walk round the perimeter and, if you need a rest before returning, there’s a handy bench by the ruins of a 12th century chapel where you can take the weight off your feet. Or you can paddle back – that would definitely give you a tingle. The water’s freezing.

I’ll let the pictures do the talking. They’re all by John, except the sheep. I like sheep. The sheep are mine.
