Shetland: Eshaness Peninsula & Lighthouse

For some of the most rugged and spectacular sight on Shetland Islands, you gotta head to the northwest of the central Mainland island to the Eshaness Peninsula. Here, huge cliffs and seastacks make for an absolute stunning and desolate shoreline – in fact, this entire area was a stratovolcano that violently exploded centuries ago. The colorful cliffs are layers of pyroclastic flows. Craters and vents turned into cliffs and sea caves with time, and the hike along the coast north of lighthouse presents one amazing seascape view after another. A yellow-white Eshaness Lighthouse stands on the very edge of the cliffs.
