To What Extent Did Changes on The Mainland Affect The Ways of Life on Stroma?
The island of Stroma is
situated two miles off the north coast of Caithness and is one mile long
by half a mile wide. Stroma was originally named Straumey by the
Norse, which means "the island in the stream". I chose
to investigate this topic because I was interested in finding out why so
many island communities have dwindled during this last century. Stroma,
in particular, appealed to me because it is part of my local history.
