'S e eilean ann an [[Arcaibh]] a tha ann am '''Brough of Birsay''' ([[Lochlannais]]/[[Nornais]]: Byrgisey). Tha e faisgsuidhichte san iar-thuath [[Mòr-thìr, Arcaibh|Mòr-thìr Arcaibh]] agus mu 13 mìltean tuath air [[BirsayStromness]]. Ann an 2011 cha robh duine sam bith a' fuireach anns an eilean.<ref>[http://www.scotlandscensus.gov.uk/documents/censusresults/release1c/rel1c2tableA4.pdf National Records of Scotland 2011 Census] Earr-ràdh 2: ''Population and households on Scotland’s inhabited islands'' (PDF).

'S uarrainnear coiseachd chun an eilein thairis air dòirlinn nàdarra, ma bhios a' mhuir air falbh. Aig làn-mara tha an t-eilean air e a sgaradh bhon tìr mhòr leis an [[Sound of Birsay]] a tha mu 240&nbsp;metair an leud.<ref>[http://www.orkneyjar.com/history/broughofbirsay/index.html Orkneyjar: ''Ancient seat of Orkney power''.]</ref>
