The coastline of Vacsay, in West Loch Roag, Lewis, is certainly irregular with daily access to nearby drying islands. It had a population of nine in 1861, but since that era has been uninhabited. It is formed of Lewisian gneiss with peaty soil which is where its name is derived - from the Old Norse for 'peat bank island'.
