From road end at S to road end at N, visiting Da Noup, Da Sneug & Da Kame. Da Sneug in mist with some excellent views through weather windows. Super cliff top location at Da Kame - even saw a Brocken Spectre. Boat trip to island was arranged by Alan H. A meal in the school hall was part of the day out along with transport to & from road ends.ger19/06/2019

First of the 3 Foula tumps. Walked the length of the road to its northern end then directly up onto the hill. Paused at bottom of the final steep grassy slope to make new BFF's with the Shetland ponies.jonglew24/08/2018
Flew in on the 10.15 flight from Tingwall which gives bags of time. North up the road, onto Da Nort Bank, and mobbed by ponies whilst eating early lunch. Up steeply but easily to Da Kame, and a fine promenade along to Da Sneug, Tounafield and Hamnafield. Down to Da Smaalie and up to Da Noup with wonderful cliff top views. Plenty of time to stroll down to the south light and Da Sooth Ness before the 16.45 flight.Gill24/08/2018
See Da Sneug for details.PGCE07/05/2018
Great day out from Tingwall. Early flight on a first misty day clearing to great sunshine. Da Noop, then Da Sneug and then Da Kame. Super curcuit of the isle taking in many features inc South Lighthouse, Da Sneck below Da Smaalie, chatting to peat cutters and visiting Ham and Da Toon. Lovely spot, a night over is called for!nordicstar07/06/2016
