Aith Ness

A peninsula on the north coast of the island of Bressay in Shetland, Aith Ness extends north for 1½ miles (2.5 km), between Aith Voe and the Voe of Cullingsburgh, to reach Score Head. Score Hill rises to 66m (216 feet) and represents the highest point of the peninsula. There were several quarries here in the 19th century, producing stone for roofing the houses of Lerwick and later there was a fish oil and guano works located on the southwest coast of the peninsula.
