Fora Ness

A remarkable peninsula lying across the mouths of Dales Voe and Colla Firth on the NE coast of the Shetland Mainland, Fora Ness rises steeply to 100m (328 feet) above sea level. It should really be an island but for the fact that it is connected to the shore by a gravel tombolo. Two further spits extend from the mainland, almost forming additional tombolos. The view from the A968 road is spectacular, as it runs along the northwest side of Dales Voe at almost the same height as the top of the peninsula.
