We expect that more cars will leave Skeld (maybe on their way to work) than will come in, and hope to hitch a ride. Strangely enough, all the cars we encounter are heading into Skeld. But we enjoy the walk. When we walk along Garderhouse Voe we see an otter hunting in the water below us. We follow it for a while with the binoculars and while watching we hear an eerie sound which, as we found out back home, might have been a grey seal.
My partner is just packing away her binoculars when a car stops in front of us. A friendly lady offers us a lift. Although she says she isn't going all the way to the road end, when she drops us off we discover that we are actually very near, only a 2 min walk. Then we have a decision to make: are we going to Walls for a wee look around, or are we going straight to Voe where we stay tonight. A quick look at the bus time table solves the problem; because of the lift we got we are in time for the bus to Walls which is due to arrive in 5 min. And indeed, a few minutes later we see the bus appear from the mist, which is also rolling in.
We have a few hours to kill before we can take the bus back to Lerwick. Walls is a tiny place, but there is a small village shop. However, we can't seem to find the bakery tearoom. We find the bakery next to the village shop, but there is no sign of a tearoom and there's no further information. We think that it might not be open yet, and decide to go for a short walk along the water. When we return an hour later, the place is still shut. A couple arrives, obvious tourists as well and they are bolt enough to knock on the door of the bakery. They are then told that the cafe is no longer operating. Ok...the (online) guide books are not very up-to-date then. We have a nose around in the village shop and ask the lady who works there about the tearoom. She confirms it is shut, but points us to a community cafe in the Germatwatt Centre, which, as it is Wednesday, happens to be open. Lucky us!
We got dropped of near Voe and walk to the village. The böd is quickly found at the marina and the keys collected. This böd is quite big compared to the other two, but again we have it for ourselves. Although Voe is small, they have a restaurant, the Pierhead. According to the guidebooks, this is a good restaurant, so that's where we are going to eat in the evening! After dinner we stay in the Pierhead for a drink and enjoy our last evening on Shetland.
