HU5381 : The outer arch at Horse of Burravoe

The outer arch at Horse of Burravoe
The outer arch at Horse of Burravoe
This improbable span of rock, cut by bedding dipping towards the passage through, is the outer of a pair of spectacular arches at Horse of Burravoe on the SE coast of Yell. The whole panoply of cliff scenery - caves, arches, geos and stacks - is only visible from a small boat able to get close in among the rocks. Sea kayaks are ideal.
