Silversea Expedition Cruises A Cruise Old Man of Hoy

The Old Man of Hoy is a magnificent weathered sandstone sea stack, towering 450 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. It is the tallest sea stack in the UK. The word ‘Hoy’ comes from the Old Norse meaning ‘High Island.’ If it is looked from certain angles it resembles a man. Originally it had two ‘legs,’ but after a particularly severe storm one leg was washed away, leaving only the single pillar. View more

Today, a 200 foot chasm separates the stack from the mainland, but records show that as recently as 1750 the stack was still connected to the mainland. Rock climbers first conquered the Old Man in 1966. Since then it has become an iconic destination for climbers, base jumpers and tourists alike.
