Mousa Sound is one of Scotland`s most important sites for the threatened Harbor Porpoise. Locally known as `Neesicks`, the animals are present between May and September, taking advantage of the abundant food supply of sandeels, herring and mackerel. Take a scenic drive from Lerwick to the small community of Sandwick, where you’ll board the Mousa ferry. Enjoy a spectacular one hour cruise around and near the tranquil and picturesque island of Mousa, home to the world’s best preserved Iron Age Broch.


You’ll be able to catch perfect views of the Mousa Broch, a stone-built `castle` over 2,000 years old, standing 43 feet high on the island. While enjoying your cruise, you may be fortunate to spot sightings of marine mammals and other wildlife. It is one of the best locations in Shetland to watch the Grey seals as large numbers bask around the island`s shallow pools. Mousa is also famous for its abundance of breeding seabirds, including hundreds of graceful Artic Terns, Artic Skuas and their larger relatives the Great Skua. After your Mousa cruise, return to the coach for your return journey to Lerwick.
