Vementry, Shetland Islands

Vementry is an uninhabited island in Shetland, Scotland, on the north side of the West Mainland, lying south of Muckle Roe. The island is known for its well-preserved chambered cairn, and the two First World War gun emplacements which overlook the narrow entrance into the former naval anchorage of Busta Voe. The island was last inhabited in the 1840s, and is now the largest uninhabited island of Shetland.
