Cheynies

A group of three small uninhabited islands off the west coast of the Shetland Mainland, the Cheynies lie a half-mile (1 km) north of Oxna and 3 miles (5 km) west southwest of Scalloway. The middle island is the largest, with two small lochs, and reaches a height of 24m (78 feet). The southern island is separated from the preceding by the Cheynie Sound and is the highest of the three, rising to 25m (82 feet) above sea level. The northern island is connected to the middle island at low tide.
