Explore Westray (Orkney Islands) Coast and Beaches

Westray is one of the Orkney Islands with a great mix of coastline, wildlife and history. The Neolithic and Bronze Age site at the Links of Noltland and at Noltland the 16th Century castle is one of the most impressive in the Northern Isles. Spectacular sea cliffs around Noup Head that are home to thousands of seabirds and the Noup Head RSPB Reserve. Last but not least some excellent quiet sandy beaches to explore and relax on.
