The Holm of Huip is a small island in the Orkney Islands, in Spurness Sound to the north west of Stronsay.

The Holm has a cairn on it, and a number of grey seals.[1]

Geography and geology[edit]

Like most of Orkney, the Holm is formed from Old Red Sandstone.

It lies opposite the airstrip and Huipness on Stronsay, and separated from it by Huip Sound.
