Long Ayre Beach (Oyce of Quindry)
The Oyce of Quindry is a flat sandy inlet on the Orkney island of South Ronaldsay. Set within a convoluted bay this is an extremely sheltered spot and has been used to land boats since Viking times.
At low tide there is a wide area of sand here, whilst towards the mouth of the inlet there are stretches made up of small rocks.
This is an area with some history to explore including megalithic sites and some World War II fortifications.
