Stronsay is an island in the Orkney islands and is known as the "Island of Bays" due to its irregular shape.

Stronsay is low lying but does have some spectacular red sandstone rock formations including sea stacks and caves. But, you don't just have a rocky coast some of the bays offer fine sandy beaches backed by sand dunes.

The cliffs at Lamb Ness and Lamb Head provide a great landscape and location for birdwatchers.
