Ward of Bressay Transmitters

The Ward of Bressay rises to a height of 226m and is topped by two two steel lattice transmission towers both over 70m high. These broadcast TV, radio and mobile phone transmissions, either directly or through relay stations to the whole of Shetland. BBC Television started transmitting from there on April 21st 1964. There is a track up to the transmitters which is tarmac for the steep highest part up to the top but is a dirt track at lower levels.
