Welcome to North Hill Nature Reserve.

Directions

Road Directions

Situated on the island of Papa Westray, North Hill may seem remote but it's a very exciting place to come and visit. The reserve is home to an extremely rare plant, the Scottish primrose, while stunning low level cliffs play host to nationally important numbers of breeding Arctic terns and skuas.

Hire binoculars from the warden, or use the telescope in the hide – you could see puffins and guillemots too.
