Whiteness: view down Whiteness Voe
Whiteness: view down Whiteness Voe
A rather splendid view from a lay-by on the A971, looking down along Whiteness Voe with White Ness the long tongue of land on the far side.

The islands in the distance include Hildasay, far right, with its smaller compatriot Linga further into the centre of the picture; behind them, Oxna, directly behind with the tip of White Ness, with Papa to its left and Cheynies (along with a few smaller islands) to its right; and Langa in front of Papa, looking like two islands and, indeed, nearly so.

The tiny island out in the middle of the Voe is Kirk Skerry.
