Uyea is an uninhabited island, lying south of Unst in Shetland, Scotland.
The island was inhabited as early as the Bronze Age, and a chambered cairn can still be seen.
In the 12th century, Saint Olaf's chapel overlooking Brei Wick was built.
In 1745, two girls from Uyea rowed to the small island of Haaf Gruney to milk some of the cows grazing here. Unfortunately, their return was marred by a strong storm, and eventually they found their tiny boat blown to Karmøy in south west Norway. The Uyea girls ended up marrying Karmøy men, and their descendants still live there.
