The island of Stronsay is about 7 miles long and is located in the east of the Orkney archipelago.

    Stronsay is a place which prides itself on its friendliness and tranquillity. The island is often described as being 'all arms and legs' or three-legged because of the three large bays which bite into the island. It is also very low-lying, with its highest point being Burgh Hill which is only 46 m (154 ft) above sea level. The island has several lovely sandy beaches and turquoise bays. The eastern coastline between Lamb Ness and Odiness is magnificent, with features including the famous Vat of Kirbister, a dramatic opening or 'gloup' spanned by the finest natural arch in Orkney. The cliffs are home to several seabird colonies.
