Linklet Bay faces east on the Orkney island of North Ronaldsay, which is connected by plane or boat to the mainland. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The beach stretches in a long arc, a super location for an extended walk. A little known feature of the island is that some sheep here eat only seaweed, producing the rich North Ronaldsay mutton, a real delicacy. While you’re on North Ronaldsay, do explore the whole island. You’re about as far north as you can get in Orkney.
