Noss National Nature Reserve

Nature Centres & Reserves

Noss, Bressay, Shetland, ZE1

    Noss National Nature Reserve is a spectacular island reserve which is home to vast colonies of nesting seabirds.

    The dramatic island of Noss with its towering cliffs supports an incredible array of nesting seabirds. In spring and summer, gannets, guillemots, fulmars and kittiwakes congregate on the cliffs. Great Skuas, which nest further inland, can also be seen hunting their prey overhead. Follow the coastal path which meanders through wildflower-strewn grassland and keep a watchful eye for porpoises and otters offshore.
