Sandi Sand, Deerness
Sandi Sand, Deerness
The large flat sand area of Sandi Sand is tidal; the distance between high and low water marks is several hundred metres, so the water is very shallow. In the distance is the Parish of Tankerness, and just visible on the horizon is Wideford Hill (SY4111), behind Kirkwall.
