Notes:


Little Holm is a small islet in Yell Sound, between the island of Yell and Northmavine in the north Shetland Mainland.
The isle is home to the Little Holm Lighthouse.

In 1983 while clearing an amount of ordnance which had been located in the vicinity on the islet, Royal Navy divers from the Bomb Disposal Team also located a shipweck on the seabed in the area. No known records exist as to the identity of this vessel.
