Isle of Stronsay

Northern Isles

One of the Orcadian isles, Stronsay was dubbed ‘Star Island’ in Old Norse after its irregular, multi-pointed coastline. This fertile and flat isle of rich farmland with excellent grazing for cattle supports an array of rare plant species, including the blue-flowered oyster-plant. The Vat of Kirbister in the east, near Odin Bay, is a spectacular feature of a varied coastline, with a number of pristine beaches. The present population of 380 is mainly based in the northern village of Whitehall.
