Widewall Bay is a sheltered enclave on the western side of South Ronaldsay, by the main southerly entrance to Scapa Flow. It is a yachting shelter and has a small beach. There is a heavy ancient historical resonance hereabouts, including the interesting Oyce of Quindry, a neolithic portal which is fully visible at low tide. This is a great bird watching location too and there are excellent views across the bay to Hoxa and the picturesque village of Herston. On this occasion I visited Sands of Wright in the bay.
What the beach means to Helen.
A high tide at Sands of Wright.
