Sandness: postbox № ZE2 126
This postbox, serving the western end of mainland Shetland, stands conveniently by a few parking spaces outside Sandness village school, but I think it likely that it has been relocated here since the post office/stores, which was in Melby just to the northwest, closed a couple of years ago. The box is emptied at 7:15 on weekday and Saturday mornings. Beyond, we see a pond in someone's garden, with the island of Papa Stour faintly visible in the distance.
