One of the finest coastal locations in Orkney, with stunning scenery and cliffs, as well as thousands of seabirds and a poignant history.
A walk up Marwick Head is highly recommended and brings together everything that’s special about Orkney – nature, wildlife, history and fantastic sea views. Found south of Birsay in the West Mainland, this huge headland is part of a spectacular stretch of coastline, snaking down as far as Stromness.
The cliffs here soar nearly 90m out of the Atlantic Ocean. A walk to the top from either Marwick Bay or a small car park at Cumlaquoy offers incredible views and – during the summer months – the chance to see thousands of seabirds swirling in the breeze. Fulmars, guillemots, razorbills, cormorants and kittiwakes all make these crumbling cliffs their home. Marwick Head is also an RSPB reserve and there are often special events held here by the charity.Features: Stunning seacliffs and seabirdsAddress: Birsay
