HP6310 : Approaching Horse Mill

taken 3 years ago, near to Haroldswick, Shetland Islands, Great Britain

Approaching Horse Mill
Approaching Horse Mill
Although this former quarry (perhaps 'mine' would be a better word) is signed from the road, when I got there I was rather underwhelmed. Perhaps others took the same view, as I haven't found any photos of it on the site yet. I understand that the "Horse Mill" related to a horse-drawn light railway taking the minerals to the pier at Baltasound.

Beyond is the low hill of Keen of Hamar, in HP6409.
