If you're new to birdwatching, what better way to see the beauty of birds close up than by visiting a seabird cliff colony? The spectacular cliffs at Fowlsheugh are packed with 130,000 breeding seabirds in the spring and summer, including guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes. You could see puffins and fulmars too. Finally, look out for grey seals, dolphins and minke whales – and take care on the cliff walks.
Open at all times.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
This nature reserve is important for recreation and education, as well as wildlife, and so we request that you do not bring your dog onto this reserve (registered guide dogs excepted)
Note: Some reserves are not served directly by public transport and, in these cases, a nearby destination (from which you may need to walk or take a taxi or ferry) may be offered.
