Brindister  Shetland


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Brindister like this:

Brindister, a voe or bay and a village in Sandsting parish, Shetland. The voe is flanked at the mouth by a headland of its own name; forms a fine open boat harbour; penetrates the land several miles south-westward; and, in its upper part, is called Unifirth. The village stands near the voe's mouth.
