Visiting the Sands of Beckon in Yell, Shetland.

A sunny morning and a little souvenir from Unst, Shetland Reel gin. For this my last day in Yell I decided to visit some more new places and have a look for some I didn´t find the last time. Not far from my little cottage in the north of Yell was a stunning beach – the Sands of Breckon.

Just a short walk down the cliffs and it is instant relaxation. Home of a variety of plants and animals and of course reminders of the Vikings were found here.

The sand here is actually made up largely of shell particles – which is part of the reason it is so pale. This also has the effect of giving the water a beautiful turquoise hue to it. (The Beach Guide Uk)
