Orasaigh is roughly round in shape and rises to a height of 30 metres. It is about 450 metres in diameter. The island is mainly covered in grass. I spotted two different types of orchids, ragged robin, tormentil, birds foot trefoil, yellow iris and buttercups.
On my walk back to the car I heard my first ever corncrake, rasping away somewhere in the machair, so my visit will be particularly memorable for this reason.
