dbpedia-owl:abstract
  • Copinsay est une île du Royaume-Uni située en Écosse dans l'archipel des Orcades.
  • Copinsay (von altnordisch „Kolbeinsey“ = „Kolbein Hrúgas Insel“), ist eine kleine heute unbewohnte Insel der Orkney, die etwa 5,5 km vor Deerness, der östlichen Halbinsel von Mainland liegt.
  • Copinsay (Old Norse: Kolbeinsey) is one of the Orkney Islands in Scotland, lying off the east coast of the Orkney Mainland. The smaller companion island to Copinsay is called the Horse of Copinsay and lies to the north east to the main island. The island is now uninhabited and managed as a bird reserve. Copinsay is also home to a lighthouse. Myths about the island include the story of the Copinsay Brownie.For many generations, prior to the final inhabitants moving to the Mainland in 1958, Copinsay was full of life; the large, double storey farm house and behind it the Steading (or farm buildings) form the farm tenants, a school with a school teacher and up to three lighthouse keepers' families.There is also an ancient burial site on the island.In the earlier part of the century a weekly postal service provided contact with the Mainland and fortnightly shopping trips to Deerness, allowing for weather. The farm boasted working horses, cattle and sheep - all of which had to be transported on the "coo" or "cow" boat. Birds' eggs provided a good supplement to the islanders diet, and men were lowered over the cliffs and a special rope, or rowed out to the Horse to bring back this addition. Pigs were loosed in the spring on the Horse for many years - feeding on the bird eggs - transported across the sound by boat.Many interesting facts and accounts of life on Copinsay are still retold in the Deerness Community, with many members still remembering when the island was still home to loved ones.
  • Copinsay è una delle Isole Orcadi, situata nel Mare del Nord presso la Scozia, a est delle principali isole. L'isola è disabitata ed è una riserva della RSPB, ed ospita anche un faro.Sull'isola è presente una grande colonia di alicheri grigi, mentre nel mese di luglio si possono avvistare le pulcinelle di mare.
