West Head of Papa

West Head of Papa is a small tidal island off the west end of Papa in Shetland, at HU358379. It is accounted one of the Scalloway Islands.[1] It is no more than 69 feet above sea level at its highest point[1].

West Head is separated from Papa itself merely by a narrow stretch of stony beach covered at high tide.

East Head of Papa is part of Papa itself[1], so it is possible that West Head became separated in recent history.
