Westerwick, Shetland Islands

Westerwick is a settlement in Shetland. It faces south with high cliffs on both sides of the wick. There is a small stony beach at the head, and the surrounding land is greener with fewer rocky outcrops than the usual Shetland scene. Westerwick is separated from Silwick by the Ward of Silwick and is about three miles from Skeld, on the West Shetland Mainland. There are just a few houses here and the whole area makes for fine cliff walking.
