Hermaness National Nature Reserve

Nature Centres & Reserves
Lerwick,
Shetland

A feast for the senses, the sounds and sights of Hermaness are full of drama. The white tops of the waves complement the white staining on the cliffs where sea birds nest every year. Gannets glide past, searching the waves relentlessly, and then diving into the water at breakneck speeds. Puffins waddle from their clifftop burrows in early summer and, away from the bustle of the cliffs, great skuas and red throated divers nest in the open moorland. Hermaness National Nature Reserve is managed by NatureScot.
