Burrafirth links (Old Norse: Borgarfjorðr, meaning "the fjord with a castle") is a strip of land with a few houses on the island of Unst, Shetland, Scotland. It separates the fjord Burra Firth from the Loch of Cliff.

Burrafirth is said to have once been home to a giant called Saxi, who, together with another giant, was lured away by a mermaid.
