Ramna Stacks

The Ramna Stacks are a group of small islets and rocks that lie immediately to the northwest of Gruney and a mile (2 km) north of the Point of Fethaland, the most northerly point on the Shetland Mainland. With Gruney, the group forms a nature reserve extending to a total area of 11.6 ha (26.6 acres). This is an important habitat for breeding birds and is one of only seven known nesting sites for Leach's Petrel (Oceanodroma leucorhoa).
