  • Great place to go see some puffins and other species of birds. We have seen whales here before. Very scenic and a great place to take in some fresh air!
  • Make sure you bring warm clothes since the wind gets severe. Provides great views
  • Nice walk, saw the root cellars, but no puffins. We'd already seen thousands on an O’Briens tour from Bay Bulls.
  • Beautiful site. You will need a 500mm or larger zoom for photos of puffins.
  • One of the few places you can see a puffin colony from land.
