Walk Round Outrabister With Ally

Walk Round Outrabister With Ally by egeorgie at Garmin Connect - Details

While most people were groping round for more alkaseltzer and considering the merits of bacon rolls and sweet tea, me and Ally headed up North to Lunna Ness for a good yomp round the headland. It's quite wet so if you were considering heading here yourself I'd highly recommend good hiking boots and a pair of clean socks to change into just incase.

It's a good old lumpy bumpy uppy downy traipse, the ground is very soft underfoot and littered with rocks making it quite hard going in places.  There's plenty to see though, the Stanes of Stofast (above), a couple of small lochs with old mills (right) still visible closer to the cliffside, great views all round and even the drive there and back opens up some really lovely views.  If you've got time, stop off at 'Fruity Franks' at Outrabister to have a gander at the antiques and also at Lunna House and Kirk on your way back.  The pier-head at Voe does great haddock and chips before heading back to town.
