Burwick Coastal Walk
The Burwick Coastal Walk follows a cliff top path along the west coast of South Ronaldsay.
On a clear day there are stunning views over the Pentland Firth to Caithness. There are plenty of opportunities to spot a variety of wildlife throughout the summer months including seabirds, seals, wildflowers, butterflies and maybe some cetaceans if we are very lucky. Walk Length approx. 3 miles and 3 hours.
This is a linear walk so we will return by the same route.
It is possible to extend this walk if you are interested in something a bit longer.
Please wear walking boots, and bring warm waterproof clothing, a drink and a snack. Further information about where to meet and what to bring with you will be included in the booking confirmation.
