Toab is a parish on the Orkney Mainland.

Toab is located off the A960 road at the head of Deer Sound on the Mainland, Orkney Islands, Scotland. It is in the parish of St Andrews – along with Tankerness – it is thought its name derives from the Norse phrase for the place where visiting ships had to pay a toll.

People from Toab are known as ‘Toaboggans’
