A sheltered embayment in the south coast of the island of Shapinsay in Orkney, Elwick provides the harbour for the island, with a ferry pier at Balfour and a jetty opposite at Elwickbank. Opening to the southwest, Elwick is protected by the small island of Helliar Holm, which is connected to the shore at low tide by rocks that form the eastern margin of the bay.
