Skiba Geo, Birsay, Orkney
Scotland

Skiba Geo has been in use since Viking times. It is a sheltered beach making it easy to land fishing boats. In the winter the boats would be pulled up to the nousts at the top of the beach for protection. The hut next to the nousts was for the fishermen to store their equipment out of the elements.

The site fell into disrepair through lack of use in the 1960s but was renovated buy the pupils, friends and parents of Class Six of Dounby Primary School in 1989.
