Burki Skerries
Burki Skerries
The foreground bay, Bungil, has a few skerries or stacks, but Burki Skerries themselves are the larger group off the headland, the largest of which has a grassy top. Further out the skerries are rocky and low-lying, jutting out into Swarbacks Minn, beyond which can be seen the islands of Papa Little and Vementry, and parts of South Mainland. This is relatively sheltered water, with a small swell window to the west north west, and holds various fish and mussel farms close to the shores. The beach is of a distinctive red sand, derived from the underlying granophyre, a plutonic igneous rock of Old Red Sandstone (Devonian) age which makes up the majority of Muckle Roe.
