邻近 Sandwick, Scotland (United Kingdom)

The difficulty is more in reaching Mousa Island (where Mousa Broch is situated), than in doing the short hike itself.

Mousa Island is one of the many Shetland Islands; Lerwick is the capital Shetland, which belongs to Scotland. It takes some determination to reach Lerwick - by ship or air. Lerwick is a port that nowadays sees many cruise ships.

From Lerwick, reach Leebitten by road. The Mousa Ferry leaves on demand from Leebitten. The crossing takes less than 10 minutes; the waters were quite choppy during our ride. Mousa Island is nowadays uninhabited, though sheep are left to graze.

Mousa Island is known for three attractions: the European Storm Petrel; the Black Guillemont,; and the Mousa Broch. The latter doesn't run away as you approach.

Mousa Broch is from the Iron Age, it is the tallest broch still standing, and one of the best preserved prehistoric buildings in Europe. It is thought to have been built around 100 BC. A broch is a hollow-walled dry-stone tower found in Scotland. We took a circular walk, to see some more of the beautiful coastline and some birds. One can climb to the top of the broch.
