I have Stroma ancestors too (Ross/Rosie/Green/Sinclair) and have been there once. In a way it didn't feel remote as both mainland Scotland and Orkney are very close, though separated by the Pentland Firth, some of the most challenging sea in the world.

Although Stroma is classed as part of Caithness, the Orkney Family History Society has transcripts of Stroma census from 1841 - 1901 and also gravestone inscriptions for Stroma on their website (members section).

There's an interesting map of Stroma showing the residences of the last residents of the island on the Caithness.org website. I found it on: www.caithness.org/atoz/stromamain/stroma8july2001/stromamap.htm

Folks, I have a model of A Wick fishing boat, a Zulu WK113 which was built for a family named Rosie & subsequently sold to Shetland.
