Boreray from Hirta


Sunadal Data Solutions takes its name from part of Boreray, an island in the St Kilda archipelago.

Sunadal from the East Sunadal itself is an extremely steep grassy slope that rises from the sea to over 1200 feet. Boreray from the North Mary Harman, in her book An Isle Called Hirte (MacLean Press, 1997), notes two possible meanings: Sun Valley (from the Old Norse), or Vertigo Slope (from Old Norse and Icelandic). Both are plausible since its eastern aspect catches the rising sun and it is more than capable of inducing vertigo!
