Waast Side

There's always a swell 'ower da waast side' - although not much of one today as it was flat calm. Here's a few pics of various wast side bits & bobs.

Skeld Marina

The Skeld Marina Sail Loft.

'Leonards Hide' overlooks Skelda Voe & is apparently a good place to see otters from.

The Skeld Public Hall a little further up the road.

Walls Public Hall.

Walls Regatta Clubhouse.

Part of the island of Linga in foreground with mussel lines in front of it with part of the island of Vaila in the distance. The building is the lookout tower at the north end of the island.

Cows & Bull at Wats Ness.

Foula from Wats Ness.

Pebble beach at Norby, Sandness.

Sandy beach just round the headland at Melby.

Pier at the Ness of Melby.

Sandness Hall.

White Water Lily Nymphaea alba. These are only found in a few lochs in the west Mainland of Shetland. They appear to be doing well this year with blooms on the Stanevatstoe Loch, Lunga Water and the small unamed loch (right next to the road), across from the Loch of Flatpunds.
