The Trondra Bridge
|Area:||1 square mile|
|Highest point:||197 feet|
Trondra was becoming rapidly depopulated until 1970, when road bridges were built to neighbouring West Burra and East Burra) and to the southern peninsula of Mainland. Since then the population has recovered.
A local community hall was opened in 1986.
Settlements on the island include:
- Burland - Burland houses one of Shetland's most popular tourist attractions - the Burland Croft Trail.
Trondra is made up of old red sandstone.  The hills are covered in grass and heather, with trees being few and far between, much like the rest of the Shetland Islands.
Trondra supports a number of seabirds including many gulls and black guillemots.
There are many fields of sheep and a few of Shetland ponies throughout the island. There is a variety of other wildlife present on and around the isle, such as hedgehogs, sparrows, starlings, seals and porpoises.
Trondra has 2 rowing teams, male and female, which compete in the summertime rowing regattas around Shetland and the annual 'Round Trondra Race'.
"Da Peerie Neep" ("The Wee Turnip") is a recently founded annual event which takes place in the Trondra hall and involves various neep related events such as "Toss the Neep".
Trondra usually enters a male and female squad in the Scalloway Fire Festival, which takes place in early January each year.
