Hoy Reserve

UK»Scotland»Northern Isles»Hoy Reserve

Hoy Reserve: This mixture of moorland and cliff tops may be exposed to the elements, so you really do need to wrap up warm, but a visit is very rewarding. You'll see the famous Old Man of Hoy rock stack that has inspired generations of climbers, not to mention the nesting seabirds that have been known to dive-bomb them too.

From guillemots, kittiwakes and red-throated divers on the cliffs, to great skuas, red grouse and golden plovers on the moors, you should see some beautiful and fascinating birds.
