Eshaness circular walk:
Coastal walk which take in the breathtaking views of the volcanic Eshaness cliffs and Calder’s geo. Walk to the Grind o’ da Navir, a natural amphitheater, formed by the power of the North Atlantic ripping the rock from the cliffs. Walk back via the Hols o’ Scraada, a natural feature formed by the collapse of a sea cave. Finally, walk back via the Broch at Houlland to view the remains of the fascinating Iron Age structure, sitting on the edge of the loch of Houlland.
This local museum is built in an old Haa house, which would have been the laird’s (landlord’s) house at one time. The building dates to the late 17thcentury and was the home of the Cheyne family. The family gifted it to the community who now run it as a community museum.
The museum has a reconstructed laird’s room which is styled as it would have been in the 19thcentury as well as temporary exhibitions which are changed and updated annually.
