Rerwick beach is located on the west side of Shetland’s South Mainland. In an area that is home to a number of wonderful and easily accessible beaches, this lovely curve of sand is often overlooked.
What is humanity’s loss appears to be the seal’s gain. You will often see seals hauled up on Rerwick beach, occasionally in large numbers. While it may be tempting to go down to the beach to take a closer look this tends to scare them back into the sea, so we’d recommend viewing the seals from the clifftop.
Rerwick faces southwesterly over Muckle sound which forms a lovely backdrop, particularly as the sun goes down.
