East Burrafirth Video

East Burrafirth Video Shetland Islands, United Kingdom/Situated on the northern boundary of Shetland's West and Central Mainland lies East Burrafirth, a shallow inlet where the Burn of Burrafirth runs into Aith Voe. There's a few houses on the road between Aith and the village of Voe to the north. A walkway follows the burn (Scots for small river or stream) up to the waterfall and beyond, a popular spot for locals and visitors to the area.To the east lies the East Hill of Burrafirth and the hills of the West Kames, miles of unspoilt peat and heather moorland and a haven for birds and other wildlife, an important breeding ground for the whimbrel. As we climb towards the end of the film you can see the islands of Vementry, Papa Little and Muckle Roe, and to the north Ronas Hill - Shetland's highest point - is visible in the clear winter air.The sea – in Shetland you’re never more than 3 miles from it – also plays a continuous and important part in the past and present of Shetland. Sea wrecks litter the coastline. Fishing, as well as crofting, was a traditional mainstay of life with the menfolk braving the sea and the womenfolk tending home and croft. And the sea, which bore folk away from the islands, as well as providing bountifully for them, has also given Shetland a network of family connections across the continents with strong communication links. Because of the many trading links over the centuries Shetland has absorbed numerous cosmopolitan influences into its culture and has consequently achieved a strong sense of its own identity.What a great day for flying!Filmed using an Inspire 1 quadcopter.
