North Unst - Viewed From the Sea

David Goodall (Saxa Vord 1959 to 1961) holidayed in Shetland in 2008. Whilst here he took a cruise in the Ezra (a converted 19th Century pilot cutter) to a number of the Islands. The voyage included a visit to Baltasound, followed by a trip around the north end of Unst. The photos below are all from his trip and they show parts of Unst from a perspective slightly different from that most of us are used to. (Left click on photos to enlarge)
