Sands of Evie, looking towards Eynhallow
Sands of Evie, looking towards Eynhallow, taken 5 years ago
Across the beautiful clear waters towards Eynhallow, a small uninhabited island in Eynhallow Sound, the stretch of water between mainland Orkney and Rousay.

There is, of course, a local folktale about the creation of the island. We saw no meremaids or monsters whilst we were there.
