Muckle Flugga

Muckle Flugga is a rocky outcrop of land just north of Unst in the Shetland Islands.

The name ‘Muckle Flugga’ means large steep-sided island in Old Norse. The island now houses an automated lighthouse, built in 1854, and a separate shore station, part of which is now the Hermaness Visitor Centre. From here you can enter the neighbouring Hermaness Nature Reserve and visit the cliffs.
