Hermaness is one of Shetland's truly special places - a dramatic clifftop National Nature Reserve that is also a spectacular seabird city - home to more than 100,000 birds in the breeding season, including countless puffins, a huge gannetry and the world's third largest colony of bonxies - great skuas. The awesome cliffs look out to the serrated rocks of Muckle Flugga and Out Stack - the most northerly place in Britain.
Constructed path and easy uphill boardwalk to reach the clifftop. Grassy clifftop terrain follows above unprotected cliff edges. Some steep ground and boggy terrain on the northern section of the clifftop walk.
None to start; nearest bus is at Haroldswick.
Hermaness NNR car park.
