Paddles with an Anas acuta...... unashamedly biased toward the sea kayak of that name (actually the voyages of two boats, one 'traffic over gold', one 'quill')

Shetland: Skeld and Westerwick
What a collection of stacks, tunnels and arches! Superb from the sea in calm misty weather. This was our first day in Shetland, hot off the ferry and anxious to get out on the water. One of the best 2 mile stretches of coast anywhere in the world. Although we had been in Shetland less than 12 hours we all agreed that even if it blew a gale for the next 3 weeks it would have been worth coming.
Just as spectacular from the cliffs and a short walk from the campsite in Skeld. So much in such a small section of coast, the mist just hanging at cliff height. A good place for wild flowers as well.
