Why not take a trip to the now uninhabited island of Mousa and visit the 2,000 year old remains of an Iron Age broch which can boast to be the best preserved broch in the world. Mousa, a 15-minute boat trip from the mainland, has so much to offer: from the broch, we will explore the ruined remains of a 19th-century township and hear the stories of shipwrecks, tragic love stories and get the chance to spot some of the wildlife. Being an RSPB Nature Reserve, Mousa is among the top places to spot wildlife. And if seal spotting isn't your thing, how about taking the evening tour into the island to view the Storm Petrels returning to their breeding colonies? The broch and surrounding boulder beach is home to 11,000 of these tiny seabirds.
Mousa trips are weather dependant and guests are reminded to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for hiking.
