Eshaness, Shetland

Hundreds of millions of years ago Eshaness was a volcano and the rocks that you see today in this area give us a fascinating insight into volcano eruptions and reveal layers of pyroclastic rock and lava. Visit Geopark Shetland to find out about this volcano and what these rocks tell us today. This coastline is wild and rugged giving us spectacular stacks, geos, blowholes and crashing waves. The best place to view these rocks is at Eshaness Lighthouse although the lighthouse itself is now privately owned.
