I'm from "that 'ert" and have often organised trips to Stroma with friends and work mates over the years. Jimmy is a lovely man, and thoroughly enjoys a wee sing song on the island with his "boxie" and friends at the "main house" !!

I'd MORE than recommend a trip to "The Island In The Stream" !!! Now it's William who takes you over to the island and he is very accomodating about times. Myself, personally, I go over now for the sheer fact that you can guarantee getting beautiful mushrooms to pick all over the island, but obviously you have to time the time of year right - end September roughly.

Oh, must tell you about the time that we were coming back on the boat and William stopped it in mid-stream for the pure fact of watching porpoises along side - MAGNIFICENT !!

Fantastic sight into an old time island with free reign to travel where you want to go!!
