HU3414 : The bend in the track

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

The bend in the track
The bend in the track
There is a well-graded track up to the communications masts on Fitful Head. Clearly, it is not open to the public to drive up, but it is an easy walk from Quendale. At this point, there is a sharp bend. Coming down, I certainly would not want to lose control here, or miss the turn in mist. The consequences are pretty clear!

I think that the rocks just left of centre must be Swarta Skerry, in HU3415.
