Mousa

Visiting Mousa is an unforgettable experience. On the short ferry ride to the island, you might be fortunate enough to see harbour porpoises and other marine mammals. In August, the island is home to over 200 hauled-out common seals which will be moulting.

Mousa is rich in plantlife and birdlife, and is notable for breeding Arctic terns, black guillemots, skuas, shags and ringed plovers. A unique night-time trip is essential to experience thousands of storm petrels returning to the island, some of which breed in the famous 2,000-year-old broch.
