PAPA-STRONSAY, an isle, in the parish of St. Peter, Stronsay, county of Orkney; containing 28 inhabitants. It is a small isle, near the island of Stronsay, and at the mouth of a sound to which it gives name; its circumference is about three miles, and it is pleasant, remarkably fertile, and produces excellent crops. It anciently had two chapels, one dedicated to St. Nicholas, and the other to St. Bride, between the ruins of which is an eminence called Earl's Knoll, on which are vestiges of buildings and graves.
