  • Magical, beautiful, fabulous. A grandiose landscape: bogs, lochs and splendid cliffs! The end of the United Kingdom, the end of the world. The large jaegers attack on the course before arriving at the cliffs. At the cliffs, the landscape is breathtaking. Colonies of Gannets, murres, puffins crazy. A place which leaves not insensitive, and we never get tired. A must see!

  • Half the fun of visiting this nature reserve is blowing out to the rugged outcropping where it is located. Once inside, you will find many interesting and informative exhibits. Many are interactive......  more »
  • Hermaness is a magical place, the kind that leave you literally speechless with excitement. Visits must be scheduled, to Unst arrive after two ferries, and once on the island Hermaness is then reached by car. You may park, it makes a quick visit to the Museum of the reserve (have a look at the number of birds to nest, awesome), and then take the path towards the cliffs, accompanied by beetles flying above you. The walk is about an hour and a half, moderate climb and well marked, with a long piece that rests on the runway. When you get to the cliffs the reward is spectacular, with amazing views and the soundtrack of birds that sing to keep you company. The mountains overlooking the sea are literally covered with birds, to the point where you will see white, and those who don't are patrolling in the air making circular paths of the sea. I had never seen anything like it and recommend it to everyone.
