Introduction / Pharay Photos


Holland lies in the southern part of the island and to the west. It is north of the Ness and south of Windywa, which is also fairly close to the shore. The photo shows Rousay and Egilsay in the background.

There were Drummonds at Holland from the 1850s until about 1890 through a Drummond marrying into the Drever family from Westay, which were previously there.

See further photos of the buildings and also the view from the boat.

Below is a view of Holland looking south to the Point of Scaraber at the south end of the island and to the Point of Fersness, Eday. The Ness can be seen to the left of the Holland buildings.
