This picture of Sanday, is Sanday! All over the island beautiful sandy beaches stretch in all directions as far as the eye can see. This one at the Bay of Sowerdie plays host to hundreds of seals in mating season. A true sight to behold and sound to hear!

Rugged Rocks

These large jagged fragments of rock rise up through the sea at low tide, giving seals and birds somewhere to sit or perch. Between them, rock pools offer safe haven for crabs and other marine life until the sea reclaims them again as the tides turn.

Sunset starts to chase away the last minutes of daylight over the dunes and beach at the Bay of Sowerdie. The beautiful colours are even more breathtaking in person. This picture encapsulates Sanday perfectly.

The only Scottish lighthouse with vertical stripes, Start Point dominates the skyline at the North End of Sanday. Before automation a Principal Lightkeeper and his family would have lived here, almost self-sufficient and kept cows and sheep.

What can you see in this picture? Elephant skin, the intricate pattern of lines on a hand, the letter ‘A’, or just a random stone? These giant fractured slabs of rock in a myriad of colours and shapes can be found all over Sanday.
