Description

Hermaness National Nature Reserve is the most northerly NNR in the UK, right at the northern tip of the UK, on the island of Unst in Shetland. It's home to thousands of pairs of seabirds, Gannets, Guillemots, Razorbills, Puffins, Kittiwakes, Gulls, Great Skuas, Arctic Skuas, and many upland birds breed there too, Red-throated divers, Golden Plover, Dunlin, Skylarks, Meadow Pipits and many other species too.

The reserve, managed by Scottish Natural Heritage has a visitor centre in the old Lighthouse shore station, toilets, a car park, and is also accessible by public transport and foot. The path from the reserve car park is now mostly a boardwalk made from recycled plastic so as to miminise the damage to the delicate blanket bog which is very susceptible to damage and errosion from trampling.

Once you reach the cliffs you can see Muckle Flugga lighthouse and view the Gannet colony which split across different cliffs around the reserve numbers in excess of 25,000 pairs.
