Kettletoft Bay Beach

Kettletoft Bay Beach is a sandy and stone sheltered bay to the east of the village of Kettletoft on the south coast of Sanday in the Orkney Islands. On the headland to the east, you have the Quoyness Chambered Cairn.
Kettletoft is the main settlement on the south of the island and you have a choice of places to eat. The harbour at Kettletoft was the main harbour on Sanday during the 19th-century herring boom, although now the ferries arrive and depart from Loth to the west.
