Hermaness Cliffs

Animals & Wildlife Landscapes & Nature See & Do


The Hermaness Cliffs can be found on the north-eastern side of Unst in the Shetland Islands.

Rising to 170m, the cliffs are located in the Hermaness National Nature Reserve and are home to thousands of breeding seabirds. During the summer months, the cliffs come alive the sound of bird cries, making it an unforgettable wildlife experience. The types of birds you can see include puffin, guillemot, gannets, kittiwakes, razorbills and much much more.

Access to the nature reserve and the cliffs is unrestricted, although visitors are asked to keep their distance from breeding birds and follow the marked route.
