Linklet Bay

View map of beach Parking available Linklet Bay Dog friendly

Season: summer

Linklet Bay faces east on the island of North Ronaldsay, which is connected by plane or boat to the Orkney mainland.  This is an area of outstanding natural beauty.  The beach stretches in a long arc and is a super location for an extended walk.  A little known feature of the island is that the 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 on Orkney.

    Can’t believe we had the honor and privilege of having Nina spend the summer with us as a Naturalist in Kachemak Bay – it’s so wonderful to hear her interpret the wonders of the beach and life! Thanks for capturing this for all of us to hear!
