SOUL-SKERRY, an isle, in the parish of Stromness, county of Orkney. It lies about ten leagues distant, west-north-west, from the village of Stromness, and is a great resort of seals; but the surge is so considerable round the isle, the fishermen have frequently been unable to effect a landing. A fatal accident happened in November 1786, in prosecuting this perilous fishing.
