OverviewHide
Ferry across deep-blue waters to the Shetland Island of Mousa, where you’ll enjoy a self-guided day of discovery amid this rugged and uninhabited landscape. Upon landing on these stoic shores, trek north for a peek at the colonies of Common and Grey Seals that thrive amid this protected territory. Mousa Island is also home to an abundance of breeding seabirds, including graceful Arctic Terns, Arctic Skuas, and their larger cousins, the Great Skua. Dominating the island are the ruins of a 2,000-year-old castle, crowned by a 43-foot stone tower that still looms over the land. Explore the beehive chambers of this ancient marvel for a close look at the craftsmanship of Iron Age builders. Learn about the stronghold’s history and climb to the top of the tower for sweeping views in every direction. Discover one of Scotland’s natural and historic treasures on this brisk and breezy exploration of Mousa Island.
