Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Horse of Copinsay, also known as the Horse, is a rectangular sea stack to the north east of Copinsay in the Orkney Islands. The Norse were fond of zoomorphising smaller islands - for example, smaller islands lying off a larger one are often termed "Calf," e.g. Calf of Flotta, Calf of Man or even Calf of Cava, or occasionally "hoggs," e.g. "Hogg of Linga." Some are even "hens," like the Hen of Gairsay. However "horses" are fairly rare. Coincidentally, the old name of Mainland, Orkney meant "horse island."show more
