Stronsay Life

Stronsay is an island in Orkney, Scotland situated to the North of the British Isles. Stronsay is part of an extensive group of Islands where the Atlantic Ocean and North Sea meet, known as the Orkney Islands. Stronsay's shape is irregular and its name originates from the Old Norse for Star Island. Stronsay is one of the inhabited islands in the Orkneys.


Stronsay Life

Life on Stronsay in some ways is similar to life on the Scottish Mainland, and in many ways daily life on Stronsay is very, very different. Here are some websites that offer an insight into what it is like to live on Stronsay Island.

Stronsay Junior High School is situated in the middle of the Island of Stronsay. There are currently 65 pupils enrolled at the school (April 2009).
