In case someone would want to know, there is a group of islands just north of Scotland (claimed by Scotland) that is called Orkney Islands and one of those tiny islands is named Hoy. As near as I can tell, Hoy is 8 or 9 miles north of Scotland and is about 5 to 6 miles wide and about 10 to 12 miles long. I measured it on one Google's satelite map. It is the most southern island of the Orkney Islands. Makes me wonder if this is where my ancestors came from.
