The Hostel is one of the start points to the Old Man of Hoy, a 137 metre sea stack, which is perhaps, Orkney's most famous landmark and also a great place to see a variety of seabirds including puffins.
Rackwick is considered one of the most beautiful places in Orkney and is surrounded by high cliffs and a fine sandy beach. Much of North Hoy is owned and managed by the RSPB.
