Houlland, Loch of

Supporting a recreational trout fishery, the Loch of Houlland is situated a half-mile (0.8 km) northeast of Esha Ness Lighthouse in the Northmavine district of the North Mainland of Shetland. The ruins of a broch lie on a promontory which extends into the loch, while an island is connected to the shore by a causeway. The loch is retained by a small dam which controlled water reaching three traditional little corn mills, the remains of which can be seen next to the stream which drains to the northwest.
