Sheep Rock


(Sheep Craig)

A wedge-shaped promontory on the east coast of Fair Isle (Shetland), Sheep Rock is attached only by a neck of land. Surrounded by cliffs, the headland falls steeply from 132m (433 feet) in the west, although the cliffs still exceeds 50m (164 feet) in height in the east. The peninsula is undermined by tunnels cut by the sea and several natural arches lies around its shores.
