April — August

An unforgettable evening viewing hundreds of puffins at close quarters, as they return to their burrows at dusk at the beautiful clifftop location at the Castle O'Burrian in Westray.

We will drive you down to the Castle O'Burrian and escort you along the clifftop walk. This is Westray's prime site for puffins and at dusk you can experience them at very close range in a natural amphitheatre as they return to their burrows after a day at sea.

Due to the ferry timetable this is only available to visitors staying overnight in Westray.
