Hermaness National Nature Reserve / Isle of Unst ***

In this region: <<<<<  >>>>>

Description:

One of the most beautiful parts of the Shetland islands is Hermaness, the most northerly headland of Unst, the northernmost inhabited island of the Shetland islands. It is a national reserve of international significance.

Designated in 1955 as a National Nature Reserve, Hermaness remains privately owned by the Edmondston family, and is world famous for its birds.

The cliff-top setting is amazingly beautiful but also hazardous, especially in bad weather. Because of the reserve's vulnerabillity many of the walking trails are covered with wooden boardwalk.
