Sanday is one of the inhabited islands of Orkney that lies off the north coast of mainland Scotland. With an area of 50.43 km2 , it is the third largest of the Orkney Islands. The main centres of population are Lady Village and Kettletoft. Sanday can be reached by Orkney Ferries or by plane from Kirkwall on the Orkney Mainland. On Sanday, an on-demand public minibus service allows connecting to the ferry.
The Picts were the pre-Norse inhabitants of Sanday but very few placenames remain from this period. The Norse named the island Sandey or Sand-øy because of the predominance of sandy beaches and this became "Sanday" during the Scots and English speaking periods. The similarly named Sandoy is in the Faroe Islands.
Many names of places and natural features derive from Old Norse. According to Dorward , the placename Kettletoft means 'Kettil's croft' although toft in this context may mean 'abandoned site of house' from the Norse topt. The suffix -bister found in Sellibister and Overbister is from bólstaðr meaning 'dwelling' or 'farm'. Other common suffixes are -wick and -ness from the Norse vík and nes and meaning 'bay' and 'headland' respectively. According to Frances Groome, Otterswick was originally known as Odinswic.
Sanday lies south of North Ronaldsay and east of Eday and Westray. It is divided naturally into two roughly equal halves by Otterswick, a bay which runs in from the north, and Kettletoft Bay in the south. The narrow isthmus between them formed the boundary between the historic parishes Cross and Burness to the west and Lady to the east. The novelist Eric Linklater described Sanday's shape seen from the air as being like that of a giant fossilised bat. Tresness, a tied island, extends from the south of Lady parish. It is connected to Sanday by a long tombolo which is backed with some of Scotland's highest sand dunes.
Changing post-glacial sea levels will have much altered the shape of this low-lying island since the last ice age. William Traill described a gale in 1838 which removed 20 hectares of sand in Otterswick Bay. This revealed a dark layer of decayed vegetation under fallen trees up to 60 centimetres in diameter. The trees lay "as if felled by a storm" and were visible under the sea for 6.5 kilometres . A search for these tree remains in the 20th century was unsuccessful.Source: Wikipedia
