Gletness aerial view

Gletness aerial view Gletness is a tiny hamlet situated at the south of the Nesting peninsular, 10km north of Lerwick as the crow flies. This little gem of a place is often missed by tourists and locals alike as it lies at the end of a single track road that winds between the Hill of the Taing and The Roonies from Vassa. The coast around this area is a mixture of low cliffs (known as "banks" in Shetland), rocky shores and pebbly beaches, but the highlight is the two small islands, the North and South Isles of Gletness. Their beauty was the inspiration for John Barclay's waltz, "Da Isles o' Gletness", a well known fiddle tune in Shetland and beyond. Enjoy the aerial views of this wonderful little corner of Shetland. Filmed with a GoPro Hero4 Black camera on a Sky Hero Y6 hex. Music is "Bending the Reed" by Gillicuddy, released under a Creative Commons license.
