Our vision: “To develop the economic, social and cultural sustainability of our community by harnessing the quality of our resources, people and island environment”
Westray is the largest of Orkney’s North Isles with a population of nearly 600. Agriculture and fishing, and related businesses, remain our core industries complemented by a growing tourist scene.
We have a beautiful environment with some stunning scenery, famous seabird cliffs, important Neolithic and Viking archaeological sites and a very strong sense of community. With each development, we seek to continue sharing our environment in a sustainable way, together with our abundant and varied wildlife.
