Enhallow

   ENHALLOW, an island, in the parish of Rousay and Egilshay, county of Orkney; containing 26 inhabitants. It is a low and very small islet, somewhat in the form of a heart, lying to the westward of the island of Rousay, from which it is separated by a reef of rocks. The Sound of Enhallow is on the south, between this and the island of Pomona, and is narrow; but as the tide is rapid, its passage can only be attempted with a fair wind and in moderate weather, it being otherwise very dangerous.
