Join Wild Orkney Walks for this lovely circular walk round Mull Head which is a local nature reserve, and hosts a fantastic variety of wildlife.
This is a lovely circular walk taking in the Gloup (a collapsed sea cave) and the Brough of Deerness.
We will wander along the coastline enjoying the stunning views out to the North Isles, whilst looking out for cetaceans, insects, wildflowers and a variety of birdlife. Watch the Fulmars making the most of the wind, fly-bys from the resident Bonxies (Great Skuas) and if we’re lucky we might even see a Puffin. Other seabirds likely to be seen are Arctic Skuas, Razorbills and Shags.
Megan is very passionate about our local wildlife and will show you things you might not see yourself.
Please wear walking boots and warm waterproof clothing. Binoculars and camera recommended. Bring a packed lunch/snack/drink.
Booking essential – details of when & where to meet will be given once the booking is confirmed. There are shorter walks available too, please enquire if you are interested in a short version.
