North Ronaldsay, Orkney Islands

North Ronaldsay (Orkney Islands) Seaside, Coast and Beaches

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.
