Huney is an uninhabited island due east of the island of Unst in the Shetland Islands, Scotland. The island is located approximately 1 kilometre south west of the Balta and has an area of just under 0.2 square kilometres (0.08 sq mi). Huney is linked to Unst at an extremely low tide by a sandy tombolo called the Yei of Huney. It is uninhabited.
The World War I British E class submarine E49 was sunk in the channel between Huney and Balta with the loss of 3 officers and 28 ratings on 12 March 1917. The submarine was heading out of Balta Sound on patrol when it struck a Naval mine probably lain by German U-boat UC-76. The wreck is now a designated war grave.
