About North RoeNorth Roe is almost as far north as you can go in Mainland Shetland. It lies near the northern tip of Northmavine where Sand Voe and Burra Voe almost turn the rocky headland of Fethaland into an island.
North Roe retains a pier and the odd boat can be seen hauled out of the water. But most fishing activity has now moved a couple of miles south to Collafirth Pier, opened in 1988 at the north end of Colla Firth on the site of an old Norwegian whaling station.
