Brough Ness circuit, Burwick, South Ronaldsay

This quiet coastal walk explores the southern extremity of Orkney - Brough Ness at the tip of South Ronaldsay. There is abundant birdlife as well as views over to the mainland. The walk also takes in a chance for a meal at the spectacularly-situated Skerries' Bistro and and a visit to Banks chambered cairn before returning along minor roads.


Grassy coastal path - uneven underfoot and a little overgrown at times. Return along minor road.
