Fair Isle is an island in northern Scotland, lying around halfway between mainland Shetland and the Orkney islands. It is known for its bird observatory and a traditional style of knitting. It is the most remote inhabited island in the United Kingdom. Fair Isle is administratively part of Shetland and is roughly equidistant from Sumburgh Head some 38 kilometres (24 mi) to the northeast on the Mainland of Shetland and North Ronaldsay, Orkney, some 43 kilometres (27 mi) to the southwest.
