  • Stunningly beautiful. The sea is an amazing colour, the rock formations are incredible, and there are cute nesting seagulls in some parts. Obviously be super careful of the loose stones near the edge.  more »
  • A short walk from the car park is enough to give the wow factor. Yesnaby Castle stack is outstanding. Lots of great photos taken.  more »

  • One of the must-places in north Scotland. Absolutely breathtaking place. Nice walks on the windy cliffs. Chance also to reach a shore.
  • Glad I took the trouble to find this wonderful coastline walk, you need to wander away from the track on occasions to see the real splendour, a photographers dream.
  • Stunning scenery! Huge cliffs plunging into the sea. Definitely one of my favourite places in Orkney.
  • Breathtaking heights, but low safety measures. Take care
  • Good walks over the cliffs. Saw some interesting rocks and birds eggs.
