Loading...

Marwick Head is a Nature Reserve run by the RSPB located 4 miles north of Skara Brae on the western side of the Orkney mainland.

Facing the Atlantic Ocean, the Marwick Head sandstone cliffs are home to thousands of nesting seabirds including kittiwakes, puffins, guillemots, razorbills and fulmars.

In Marwick Bay, you can also see many wading birds and ducks, as well as hen harriers (if you’re lucky) and short-eared owls. Take the circular Marwick Head clifftop walk and marvel at the stunning views over to the island of Hoy.

Open throughout the year, for more information on the RSPB reserve at Marwick Head, go to www.rspb.org.uk
