Hermaness National Nature Reserve / Isle of Unst ***
Region: Shetland Islands
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.
