Red Roof Cafe & Gallery

With its distinctive eponymous red roof, you can't miss it. A great place to stop on the road for coffee, local grub (inc children's menu) and some local art as well. It was once a wreck and has been lovingly restored by its present owners.

Saxa Vord Distillery

Small distillery opn most northerly of Shetland's islands in an ex RAF base. You can visit by appointment and they have their own tasting rooms!

Shandwick Stone

Pictish stone dating from 800AD and now protected by glass case. Walk from road. Exceptional markings and documentation make this very interesting and worth visiting.

Shandwick Beach

Shandwick Bay is located within the seaboard villages of Shandwick and Balintore. The extensive sandy beach has dunes behind it and rocky areas to the North and the South. There is a charming harbour in Balintore to the North.
