HU6670 : Trolli Geo

taken 5 years ago, near to Housay, Shetland Islands, Great Britain

Trolli Geo
Trolli Geo
Trolli Geo separates the main part of Housay from Mio Ness. The route across the geo is difficult (and the guides to Skerries advise against trying it) because of a rock fall, although (we were told) sheep are still grazed on the Ward of Mioness. Ropes of dubious quality do hang both sides of the gap - a blue rope is visible in the picture. There are some drums stuck under the rocks which boom as they are moved by waves and tide. A good place to turn round in the exploration of Out Skerries.
