Burn of Valayre

This plantation sits on a Site of Special Scientific Interest, close to the Voxter Outdoor Centre. It is a one hectare site featuring only native trees known to grow or have grown in Shetland: alder, aspen, Downy birch, rowan and willow. A circular path crosses the burn at the east end via a ford. Further up the burn, visitors will find two relict examples of rowan, dogrose and honeysuckle.
