By Air

 

If you're flying, you'll arrive in Sumburgh Airport at the south end of the Mainland. (Shetlanders call the biggest of the habitable islands 'The Mainland')  

 

It takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes to drive to Ramna Vord from the airport. Take the A970 northwards towards Lerwick for 21 miles, then turn left onto the B9073 for 1 mile. At the end of that, turn right onto the A970 (again) signposted to the north. Take that for 1.5 miles, then turn left - signposted towards Hillswick, Sullum Voe and Sandness. After about 2 miles, turn left onto the A971 towards Sandness Walls and Sandness.  Follow that for 17 miles - go over the Bridge of Walls, then immediately turn right onto a narrow, single track road signposted to Sandness for about 7 miles. Don't take any side turnings - keep going straight through Sandness, until you see a sign for Huxter. Ramna Vord is at the end of that road - past a croft house on your left.
