A small rocky island in the Firth of Forth, part of the Forth Islands Special Protection Area and home to a range of breeding seabirds including shag, eider and fulmar and a small population of puffins (less than 20 pairs). The island was formerly a tern breeding colony and habitat management work is underway to restore nesting terns here.
The island can be viewed from the Firth of Forth RSPB Puffin Cruises which run from South Queensferry during the summer months or alternatively visit Fowlsheugh or Mull of Galloway reserves.
