Noss National Nature Reserve

Nature Centres & Reserves

Please note the ferry from Bressay to Noss is not running in 2020. You can take a boat trip to see the cliffs - have a look at Shetland.org to find out which companies are running trips this year. The island of Noss is renowned as one of Europe’s finest wildlife sites. Its 180 metre high sea cliffs – dramatic at any time of year – come to life in summer when tens of thousands of seabirds return here to nest. This small island has one of the most easily reached seabird colonies where you can experience these wonderful creatures close-up.
