Mull Head Wildlife Walk

The Mull Head Wildlife Walk is one of my most popular summer walks, offering a wide variety of wildlife including waders, seabirds, wildflowers and insects.

The walk includes a visit to The Gloup (a collapsed sea cave), and we then follow a coastal path along the cliff tops, with views out to the Northern Isles (on a clear day). There's a mix of habitats including farmland, verges, heath and cliffs. We will enjoy a picnic lunch on the cliff tops watching seabirds such as fulmars, skuas and gulls. We might even be lucky and spot a few puffins!

It is also possible to do a shorter circular walk which lasts approx. 3 hours, price £45pp.

Please wear walking boots, and bring warm waterproof clothing, a drink and a picnic. More information on where to meet and what to bring with you will be included in your booking confirmation.

From £60 per adult

Tour company information

Wild Orkney Walks

Wild Orkney Walks operates all year round, offering guided walks for small groups from 1 person up to a maximum of 6 people. We can take you by foot to beautiful locations, allowing you to escape the crowds and get off the beaten track. From busy seabird cliffs to colourful wildflower meadows, our walks cover it all. In addition we also offer Bespoke walks, Island trips and a Wildlife Guiding Service. One of the many things we love about walking in Orkney is the surprise of the unknown, you just never know what you might see which adds to the enjoyment of being outdoors.
