Sumburgh Head

Sumburgh Head is the southernmost point of the Shetland Mainland and lies 1¼ miles (2 km) south southeast of the settlement of Sumburgh, rising steeply to a height of 87m (285 feet). A Stevenson-built lighthouse, dating from 1821, stands on the headland, surrounded by cliffs which are noted for their seabirds.
