Further north than the southern tip of Norway, but with a mild climate, North Ronaldsay is the furthest flung of the Orkney Isles.
This small low lying island has been inhabited for centuries. This reflected by the high number of Neolithic sites on the island including stone burial cists, standing stones and the Broch of Burrian. Today the island continues to be heavily farmed from old-style crofts and is famous for its iconic seaweed-eating sheep.
North Ronaldsay supports an extremely rich and diverse population of wild flowers and mammals. The island is also a hotspot for rare birds that stop by in spring and autumn, while there are also many breeding species which spend the spring and summer here. Following in the footsteps of the famous Fair Isle, there is now a bird observatory here.
The New Lighthouse is the tallest land-based lighthouse in Britain, rising to a height of over 100 ft. On a clear day you can see Fair Isle, and even Sumburgh and Fitful Head on Shetland.
