Lunna Peninsula

A finger of land which extends from the northeast coast of the Shetland Mainland at the southeastern entrance to Yell Sound, the Lunna Peninsula lies between Vidlin Voe and Lunna Sound, 17 miles (28 km) north of Lerwick. The peninsula terminates at Lunna Ness, but also includes the Ness of Setter and Cul Ness. Extending to 7 miles (11 km) in length, the Lunna Peninsula is rarely more than a mile (1.5 km) wide, and narrows to less than a quarter-mile (0.5 km) between East and West Lunna Voe. The settlements of Lunna, Mooradale and Hamnavoe are all situated on the peninsula. The Ninian Pipeline, bringing oil from the North Sea to the Sullom Voe Oil Terminal, makes landfall at Grut Wick and runs down the peninsula to Cul Ness where crosses Lunna Sound to Firth Ness.
