The Tangwick Ha Museum, North Mainland

The North Mainland, stretching for more than 30 miles north from the central belt around Lerwick, is wilder than much of Shetland, with almost relentlessly bleak moorland and some rugged and dramatic coastal scenery.
The Tangwick Ha Museum is located in a a restored seventeenth century mansion, which tells the often moving story of this remote corner of Shetland and its role in the dangerous trade of deep-sea fishing and whaling.
To the north  is Esha Ness Lighthouse, a great place to view the cliffs, stacks and, in rough weather, blowholes of this stretch of coast, and the starting point for an axcellent three hour walk.
