Copinsasy is one of the smallest of the 70 or so Orkney Islands in north Scotland. It lies just off the east coast of Orkney Mainland. Copinsay is uninhabited since 1958 and managed as a bird reserve. The island used to be full of life, and there remain a large, double storey farmhouse, behind it the farm buildings for the farm tenants, a school with schoolteacher, homes for three lighthouse keepers' families, and an ancient burial site. The farm catered for working horses, cattle and sheep.

The island was bought by the ornithology charity RSPB in 1972. The island has a vast seabird colony that includes guillemots, kittiwakes, puffins and razorbills. Some fields are still grassed for Corncrake (migrating birds). Sheer sandstone cliffs provide ideal breeding ledges for seabirds. The island has nearly a mile of cliffs, up to 76 m high. There is also a large colony of around 2000 grey seals on the island. On the eastern side atop 27m cliffs is a (now automated) 16 m stone tower lighthouse

At low tide one can walk west of Copinsay along a half-kilometre stretch called Isle Rough, to the small tidal islands Ward Holm, Corn Holm, and Black Holm. To the north east of Copinsay is a rectangular sea stack known as the Horse of Copinsay. (The Norse often named islets after animals – calf, hen, horse etc.) During WWII a plane crash landed on Copinsay, was dismantles, and taken away. Meanwhile, officers from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds visit the island, to find an abundance of some bird species that are uncommon elsewhere, as well as insect specimens that surprise, such as the rare great yellow bumble bee.
