Grutness beach is a south-east facing beach close to Sumburgh Airport and the ferry terminal for Fair Isle.
The beach is a pebble beach with some large rocks and some sand. These large rocks are very smooth as they have been smashed by the heavy winds and seas you can get here. You need to be very careful of the sea conditions on this beach.
Grutness is part of a stretch of coast that is a great location for seeing whales, including orcas. If you are lucky you may see them close at hand as they search for seals that are closer to the shoreline.
Parking and toilets by the ferry.
