Rackwick Bay is the second manonabeach® destination on Hoy, a wonderful island, natural and unspoilt, well worth a visit during any stay on the Orkney Islands. The beach setting is exceptional, bounded by 200 metre high cliffs and the starting point for a walk to the famous Old Man of Hoy. There is a strong crofting heritage, with a sensitively restored croft called Cra’as Nest (Crow’s Nest), which you can visit. This is a fine spot for camping, supported by a bothy. The beach itself is notable for large, weather-rounded stones, in subtlely different colours.
