Welcome to Cottascarth & Rendall Moss Nature Reserve.
If you'd like to visit a remote, tranquil wildlife haven, and enjoy the chance to see birds of prey such as hen harriers and merlins, this is the place to come. It's now home to one of the highest densities of breeding curlews in Europe, as well as the occasional short-eared owl, so you have a good chance of seeing something special.
Unfortunately we have had to close the reserve temporarily over the winter period while we review our car parking arrangements. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Please check the website or contact the Orkney office directly for any updates.
