Fair Isle North Lighthouse and bird observatory

This short, easy ramble follows the road from the ferry jetty at North Haven, exploring the coastal features to reach the North Lighthouse with spectacular cliffs nearby before returning via a blow hole and the bird observatory (closed as destroyed by fire March 2019; hopefully to be rebuilt).


Very quiet minor road, short section pathless coastal walking.
