Small island on south west of Mainland island that is connected to the main island by a "tombolo" or spit and is a typical feature of the Shetland coastline. The inlets are known locally as Voes as in Sullom Voe. Makes a great walk!
The island achieved wider fame when a treasure was found under the altar slab in 1958 in the ruined chapel. Today, the island is entirely uninhabited except by birds and wildlife. On a nice day, it makes a wonderful walk and sitting on the tombolo to eat a sandwich is a joy.
