History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
There is a road of sorts on the Oronsay end of The Strand, and this leads directly to the ruins of a medieval priory.
It takes a good 15 to 25 minutes to cross The Strand from end to end, and though it may look dry when the tide is out, trust me, it isn't! A wise person would take rubber boots for the crossing. It would also be a good ida to check the tide timetable before setting out. A copy can usually be found in the window of the ferry terminal at Scalasaig.
