Springs on Graemsay
Graemsay may not sound the most attractive of islands, its name coming from an early occupant, Grimr, but it continues to attract 27 residents. That is, despite a school that closed in 1996, a post office with limited opening hours and dependency on delivery services from Mainland shops. Some of the residents have water piped over from Hoy and some have access to their own springs. The Spring has brought customary lambing interests and one aspect of this is outlined by Sian in her blog, Life on a Small Island, featured here four months ago.
