Bispøyan is a group of islands in the municipality of Hitra in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. They are located north of Kvenvær on the island of Hitra, and northwest of the island of Helgbustadøya.[1] The largest islands include Burøya, Olderøya, Monsøya, and Henriksøya. The rocky islands are now all uninhabited, but the many homes on them are used as summer vacation homes.
