West Burrafirth

West Burrafirth makes a good anchorage. Vessels berthing at the pier are well sheltered by the ferry terminal serving Papa Stour. There is a Pictish broch nearby.

Along the coast, to the east, lies the uninhabited island of Vementry, marking the entrance to Swarbacks Minn, leading 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.
