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.
