COVID UPDATE: The nature trails are open in line with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code but our viewing hide remains closed at this time. Please note the car park has limited spaces. If the car park is full please come back to see us on a different day. Parking on the verges around the car park blocks access for local residents and emergency vehicles. Thank you. All of Scotland’s wild places and green spaces are vital for the survival of its unique, amazing wildlife. If you plan to head out to these areas please respect and protect Scotland’s great outdoors and leave no trace. #RespectProtectEnjoy #ScottishOutdoorAccessCode #CheckBeforeYouGo
Welcome to RSPB Scotland Fowlsheugh. If you're new to birdwatching, what better way to see the beauty of birds close up than by visiting a seabird cliff colony?
The spectacular cliffs at Fowlsheugh are packed with 130,000 breeding seabirds in the spring and summer, including guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes. You could see puffins and fulmars too. Look out for grey seals, dolphins and minke whales too – and take care on the cliff walks.
Open at all times. Entrance is free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.

This nature reserve is important for wildlife. RSPB Scotland welcomes responsible access, in line with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. During the ground-nesting bird breeding season (1 April to 15 August) we would ask that you keep your dog close to you, preferably on a short lead and please clean up after your dog.
