Weisdale Voe, (HU380480), in the southeast corner of the West Shetland Mainland, is an inlet between the headlands of Russa Ness and Strom Ness.
On the east side of the voe is the village of Weisdale, and the housing estates of Kalliness, and Kallibrig. On the west shore are the settlements of Cott and Heglibister.
A short distance up the Weisdale Burn from the head of the voe is the Weisdale Mill, a former water mill which now houses the Bonhoga Gallery.

in the distance.
The view from the roadside at the top of the long brae on the road west, across Weisdale Voe towards the small islands and south to Fitful Head, is one of the most famous and most photographed in Shetland. From here it possible to see the landscape and trace the shape of the empty crofts and steadings.
