Description

A small headland of short walls and slabs up to 10m. Good solid compact rock with reasonable landings.

 

At risk of sounding a pedant, the rock is not a psammite. It is an epidote seyenite. Seyenite is essentially a granite without quartz. Epidote is a dark green mineral indicating a degree of metamorphism. That said, the beautiful rock at Pundsar can be treated by climbers as a granite.

Access

Take the B9074 from Scalloway to Burra and drive to Hamnavoe. In Hamnavoe take the left turn before the pier. Park at the end of this road. Pundsar is the obvious highpoint on the headland.
