There are a wide variety of pursuits for the visitor to Nibon in the North Mainland. Nibon itself is a lovely spot for walks out along the coastline to the South. Dramatic cliff scenery, seals and birdlife to be seen. Many artists have taken a great liking to this spot and found it very inspiring. Further afield are trips to Hillswick and Eshaness. Eshaness cliffs and lighthouse are a priority for most visitors to Shetland and Eshaness is 15 mins away from Nibon by car. The dramatic 'Drongs' are clearly visible also on route. The Tangwick Haa museum, in Eshaness, is a quaint little museum with a wealth of local history.
Other walks further to the North that can be undertaken are to Uyea or Fethaland in North Roe. Also a walk around Hillswick Ness is very pleasant. To the South of Nibon the Isle of Muckle Roe is a beauty spot and many visitors take in the walk to the 'Hams' of Muckle Roe and the cliff walks around the area. Cycling is enjoyable in the North end. Single track roads to the North are peaceful and winding, some routes are hilly for the cyclist who requires a challenge.
While staying at Nibon you may wish to dine out rather then 'eat in'. We would recommend you try Busta House Hotel. Take the first junction to the left after leaving Brae towards Hillswick and follow directions. Busta House is an old lairds house and is full of history and even has tell of ghosts. Dining is either in the bar or restaurant.
