North Ronaldsay is the most remote and northernmost island in Orkney. It is known for its unique seaweed eating sheep. They are confined to the shoreline by a tall dry-stone dyke, which completely encircles the 19 km island, forcing the sheep to stay on the shoreline.


Why not check beaches nearby as we have one beach around North Ronaldsay, 18 beaches in Orkney Islands, or have a look at our list of Orkney Islands dog friendly beaches, or even our United Kingdom Blue Flag beach list.
