Hebrista, Holm of

A low-lying rock-trimmed teardrop-shaped islet located at the head of West Burra Firth, an inlet in the West Mainland of Shetland, the Holm of Hebrista lies a quarter-mile (0.4 km) north of the settlement of West Burrafirth. Extending to only 0.2 ha (0.5 acres), its principal feature is the Broch of West Burrafirth, which occupies the majority of the island.
