Muness Castle Video

Muness Castle Video Unst - Muness Castle and Norwick -  Shetland Islands, United Kingdom/Unst is the most northerly island of the Shetland archipelago and the most northerly inhabited island in the UK. In this short film we take a flight over two popular locations in this beautiful island, Muness Castle and Norwick Beach. Located on the south eastern tip of Unst, Muness Castle was designed by Andrew Crawford and built in the late 16th Century for Laurence Bruce of Cultmalindie - the Sheriff of Shetland at the time - and is the most northerly castle in the UK. The castle was burnt down by French raiders in 1627 and although repaired it fell into disuse in the late 1600s. The Category A listed building is now in the care of Historic Scotland and open to visitors throughout the year who can get the key from a nearby house. From Muness Castle we head to the north east of the island and the beautiful Norwick Beach. Known for its soft sand and crystal clear waters this is a popular spot with tourists and locals alike. The two properties located practically on the beach are almost the last outpost of habitation in Shetland, with only a single house at Skaw 2km further north. The white croft house at the end of the beach - "Banks" - has recently been completely rebuilt and restored. Filmed with a GoPro Hero4 Black camera on a Sky Hero Y6 hex.
