Hi MK2

Saiskaill could possibly be the name of a house/farm. Does not appear to be an area.

orkneyjar.com/links

skaill;   meaning house or hall,  found today as- skaill, eg Langskaill

Just a thought ;)

Saviskaill farm, possible location and photos
« Reply #14 on: Thursday 04 December 08 22:12 GMT (UK) »
The previous poster is right in that this is undoubtably the name of a farm or house.  Even today, addresses in Orkney are house names (except for some in the main town of Kirkwall, or houses within newer housing estates).  This does make life fun when trying to input them into standard government forms!  So, it should be possible then to actually find your Saviskaill either on current or old maps of Orkney.  I say 'should', because unfortunately there are often many houses of the same name in different areas of Orkney.  If you can identify which area, or which island your ancestors came from then that will help.  This link will get you to one possibility, but it may not be the only one. (it is the only one I can find at the moment though). It is on the north isle of Rousay, which is just a short ferry trip from mainland Orkney. 
http://tinyurl.com/saviskaill
If you zoom in on the map at the point of Saviskaill bay you will get the house/farm identified.

For a bit more of a scenic view try this site:
http://www.aroundrousay.co.uk/saviskaill_bay.shtml
You will see on one of the photos here that Saviskaill farm is identified in the picture.  This again 'may' be your farm, but may not, and even if it is the right location, the buildings will probably be a lot newer.  There will almost certainly be remnants of old buildings on the site though, around the current buildings. 

(BTW I live in Orkney, although I am a relatively recent immigrant to the islands and have no family heritage here)

Info about life in old Orkney
« Reply #15 on: Thursday 04 December 08 22:20 GMT (UK) »
There have been quite a lot of local histories written about life in old Orkney.  You might want to make an enquiry to www.orcadian.co.uk - this is our local newspaper, that also publishes local books and has an online bookshop.  If you wanted advice on what books might be most useful, I'm sure you could email them with your requests.

Excellent Corinne,

I'm sure that is the farm, the island of Rousay is mentioned in most of the records I have.

Thanks again.
