Papa lies north west of Burra and east of Oxna in the Shetland Islands. The population was 20 in 1871, 14 in 1881 and 23 in 1891. The last residents left between 1891 and 1930. Most habitation was on the eastern end of the island, the peninsula East Head of Papa. A beached loch and a low area divide the island nearly into three separate parts.
