The Shetland Bus connection

Arriving back on mainland (from Whalsay) at Lund I decided to head off towards Lunna - that's where the Shetland Bus was based. Saw Lunna House (where it was masterminded).

The Shetland Bus was a Shetland based boat operation to and from Norway that took place during the Second World War. They used small fishing boats to land agents, radio sets, arms and ammunition and returned with refugees.

Lunna House

Lunna Kirk was quite interesting too - looked fairly modern but is actually quite old. It has 2 trees growing at the side of it - kind of built in.

Gorgeous scenery and lighting out this headland too.
