COVID UPDATE: The nature trails are open at the site but acess relies on local ferry operators from mainland Orkney. Please check with the relevant ferry company before travelling.
Welcome to Onziebust Nature Reserve. Come during the spring and summer and you will see a wonderfully exuberant display of summer flowers and possibly the rare great yellow bumblebee. Marshland wading birds nest here in the summer, while in the autumn greylag geese and a variety of ducks stop off at Onziebust's two tranquil lochs.
Open at all times.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.

Information for dog owners
You can walk with your dog on any land in Scotland. Dogs are allowed on the reserve but to be kept under control by their owners. We encourage responsible dog walking, and ask you to keep your dog close to you, preferably on a lead, especially between 1 April and 30 June, the season many birds nest on the ground.
