West Burrafirth

West Burrafirth pier






West Burrafirth makes a good anchorage featuring a pictish broch and shelters the pier and Ro Ro ferry terminal for the Papa Stour ferry. To the east lies uninhabited Vementry Isle and the sound of Swarbacks Minn, the entrance to Aith Voe, Olna Firth, and Busta Voe - a former naval anchorage. As you enter, look up towards Vementry’s First World War watch tower and two gun emplacements which guard the sound. The Isle also features Shetland’s best-preserved chambered cairn.
