Enjoy a relaxed walk to see Grey seals and their pups on nursery beaches.

The months of October to December are when Grey Seals pup on rocky beaches here in Orkney. Join us for a walk along cliff top paths where we can view the colonies without disturbing them. Look out for the cute pups in their white coats, or mum’s arguing over space on the beach, and see what other wildlife is around at this time of year.

Walk lasts approx. 2-3 hours.

Warm, waterproof clothing and sturdy footwear is essential, binoculars and camera are recommended.

Booking essential – details of when & where to meet will be given once the booking is confirmed.

Due to Covid-19 our max group size is now 6 and is restricted to one household/family group/social bubble. We are currently unable to offer our service of Wildlife Guiding.
