Clate it is located south of the largest village of the island, Symbister, along the main road out of the village, just south of Sandwick. Haa Ness and Dimni Geo are coastal features at Clate, and the Holm of Sandwick lies off the coast. There are several caves to the southeast. From Clate, a track leads to the southeast, up to a quarry, then leads uphill, passing the southwestern ridge of the Ward of Clett.
The British military established a radar camp in Clate during wartime. Tanks and sheds built by the military were still in use in 1986. A Catalina bomber crashed in the vicinity in the early part of World War II.
