Welcome to Bigton & Boddam

South of here, Shetland's best beach is gloriously white Scousburgh Sands. Back on the main road, from small Boddam a side road leads to the Shetland Crofthouse Museum.

South of Boddam, a minor road runs southwest to Quendale. Here you’ll find the small but excellent, restored and fully operational 19th-century Quendale Water Mill. The village overlooks a long, sandy beach to the south in the Bay of Quendale. West of the bay there’s dramatic cliff scenery and diving in the waters between Garth’s Ness and Fitful Head, and to the wreck of the oil tanker Braer off Garth’s Ness.
