About Muckle and Little Ossa and Fladda

Muckle Ossa is the larger of two rocks located off the northwest coast of the Shetland mainland, Muckle Ossa lies immediately to the north of Little Ossa and the skerry Fladda, and 2½ miles (4 km) west of the headland of The Faither. The rocks are easily seen looking north west from the Ehaness Lighthouse.

 The cone shaped stack of Muckle Ossa is probably the solidified lava feed channel to the main vent of a volcano, now exposed by erosion.

Muckle and Little Ossa can be approached by sea only in calm weather, they are barren and swept clean by the winter storms. In a losing battle with the full force of the Atlantic, on occasion it is said the sea can run clean over the top of the rock.
