Stroma, Pentland Firth, United Kingdom

The petite island of Stroma stands as a silent testament to the indomitable spirit of its bygone inhabitants. This secluded gem whispers tales of its prehistoric settlement and continuous habitation until its eventual abandonment in 1962. The unpredictable currents, high tidal swings, and potent winds of the Pentland Firth often isolated the island, creating a self-reliant populace that weathered numerous adversities. Stroma's dramatic sea cliffs also serve as a sanctuary for abundant wildlife, including seabirds and gray seals.
