Attractively-named Kettletoft is easily the most photogenic of Sanday's two main settlements, on a narrow headland between two of the large bays so typical of the island. The small clutch of houses is strung along the west side of Kettletoft Bay, with a harbour that used to be Sanday's main ferry port and part of a thriving herring industry... no longer, and the former hustle and bustle is hard to imagine today. On the other side of the headland is Backaskaill Bay, probably Sanday's busiest beach. Having said that, Sanday doesn't exactly get "busy" like other places can...
