Stronsay air field (ICAO: EGER) is an airfield on Stronsay island in the Orkneys in Scotland.
The airfield was built in an attempt to break the isolation of the Orkneys and opened in August 1971. It was not Stronsays first airfield, as an earlier airfield existed on the island between 1934 and 1946. There are scheduled services, such as flown to the other remote airfields, using Britten-Norman Islanders. The airfields' only facilities are a platform and a small office building/shed.
