Fort Island, or more accurately ‘St Michael’s Isle’, is a small island off the end of the Langness peninsular overlooking Derbyhaven Bay. It is connected by a small, and slightly run down, road so the car park is accessible by vehicles.

There are a few well defined tracks around the island and to walk around will take you around 20 minutes. It is a nice little walk, and there are ruins of an old fort and church to explore. Little people do love it, as there are lots of rocks etc to climb around and explore.

Word of warning, especially with children. Fort Island is very popular with dog walkers, and not all of them follow the rules with bagging. So watch your step..

If photography is your thing, head there for sunrise on a still day, and you can get some great silhouette shots of the Fort from the shoreline in Derbyhaven Bay.
