Shetland’s Eshaness Peninsula is a masterpiece of Mother Nature. Vast imposing chunks of jagged cliff clash with the ferocious swells of the North Atlantic, highlighting the assortment of stacks, blowholes and geos (or narrow inlets). The intoxicating views feature in the BBC drama Shetland and boast a history as dramatic as their likeness. Some 300 to 400 million years ago, when Shetland had a tropical climate and lay close to the equator as part of a huge supercontinent, the Eshaness Volcano guarded the area. Today, the layered cliffs reveal what is regarded as the ‘greatest section through the flank of a volcano’ in the entire British Isles.
