Eshaness, Shetland



Eshaness (Esha Ness) is a rugged headland situated in Shetland’s North Mainland, about seven miles west of Hillswick. The coastline is exposed to the full force of the North Atlantic creating massive rock stacks, caves, blowholes and geos (inlets) from the ancient volcanic rock.

We start our flight near the famous lighthouse, built in 1929 and designed by David and Charles Stevenson. We’ll then fly out to sea to take in some stunning views of the coastline before exploring the rock features and the long “Calder’s Geo” right by the road. You’ll need a head for heights for some of these shots!

Shot with GoPro Hero3 and Hero4 Black cameras at 2.7K/30 on a Sky Hero Y6 hexacopter and Phantom 2 quad. Rendered in 21:9 (1920 x 837) HD ultra widescreen. Music is “In The Deep Groove Valley” by Rory Gillies from the Deep Groove Valley EP.
