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. It is no more than 69 feet above sea level at its highest point.
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, so it is possible that West Head became separated in recent history.
