Sumburgh a hamlet at the extreme southern tip of the Mainland, is notable for two vividly contrasting manifestations of mankind, the prehistoric Jarlshof excavated site and the most modern airport. The latter has recently and urgently been greatly extended and reconstructed to handle much bigger aircraft than formerly and at much greater frequency, because this is now the vital staging post serving the offshore oil rigs and platforms: North Sea oil has turned Sumburgh into the busiest airport away from the international airports in Scotland.

There is a large modern hotel, and the small loch is popular with trout-anglers and bird-watchers. Just to the south of Sumburgh Head runs the Roost, a tidal current of great force, which used to be a formidable obstacle in the days of small ships.
