Andy Strangeway (born 1965 in Londesborough, East Riding of Yorkshire), a decorator and islomaniac from the Yorkshire Wolds, is the first - and so far the only - person to complete the challenge of landing and sleeping on all 162 of Scotland's islands of 40 hectares and above. One definition of an island is that used by Hamish Haswell-Smith in his book The Scottish Islands first published by Canongate in 1999. This list excludes bridged islands such as Skye and tidal islands such as Oronsay that are much larger than 40 hectares (99 acres). Strangeway's definition is simply "a piece of land surrounded by sea that you can't walk to". It has subsequently been suggested that to sleep on these islands be collectively referred to as Strangeways'.
