Entry Point – Sandy Shallow slight incline Surrounding amenities/Bathrooms- Nearby toilets depending on where you park, nearby Air BNB and campsite depending on the season Getting There – Northlink Ferries from Scrabster in the far North of Scotland is the most direct route taking you past the scenic Old Man of Hoy sea stack and into Stromness. Map Current Weather Conditions   Wee Blether Orkney is an absolutely magical place, if you haven’t been – GO!!!  The ancient monuments, stone circles, huge skies and creative community make it a destination with a lot on offer.  Evie Beach was one of the best places we could find for SUPing as it was nice and protected (it was pretty windy while we were there) and had a great easy access  from the track to the sandy beach, and the handy nearby toilets were a bonus.  There is also historic Broch of Gurness (ancient fortified tower building) nearby which is also worth a visit.  There isn’t a lot of facilities at the wee town of Evie, a small shop which didn’t seem open when we were there so it might be a good idea to bring any supplies you need for your trip with you from Stromness or Kirkwall. 69336637_368891520700792_3618311897348046848_n   FIND BEAUTIFUL PLACES TO SUP LEARN MORE ABOUT EQUIPMENT WATCH THE LATEST SUP ADVENTURE VIDEO
