West Burra tombolo
West Burra tombolo
Having started at Bridge End on West Burra, paddling down South Voe and West Voe, we knew we would be exposed to the swell at the south end when we wanted to cross over in our sea kayak circumnavigation of East Burra. So we'd stopped at this tombolo hoping it would offer us a view of sea conditions to the west. It turned out that Banna Minn has a sufficiently narrow entrance that it is quite a sheltered beach, so we left not much better informed than when we'd landed. And, yes, paddling round the south end of East Burra did indeed prove quite exciting...
