Huxter Click Mills
|[One of the mills, Papa Stour in the distance]|
Go as far west on Shetland's Mainland as you possibly can by road, then continue on foot beyond the farm buildings at Huxter, and you'll soon arrive at the Burn of Scammidale. The stream carves a pretty course through grassy knolls with views to Papa Stour's cliffs from the secluded beach just below. But most people will visit for the trio of horizontal water mills lining the burn constructed in Norse times. They're not quite as well kept as the one on Orkney, but the setting is better.
