Bay of Lopness


    The Bay of Lopness is found on the eastern coastline of Sanday, Orkney.

    Visit the Bay of Lopness and at low tide you can look out for the remains of the WW1 destroyer BOS which went ashore in 1919. Facilities at this beach include a picnic site and information board.

    The attractive island of Sanday is the largest of the North Isles of Orkney, and as the name suggests its most outstanding features are the sweeping bays with their white un-spoilt sandy beaches.  To get to the island of Sanday, you can take one of the many ferries which link island of Orkney or a short flight from Kirkwall airport.
