Noss

Noss: Take a boat trip to this island where thousands of seabirds and wonderful scenery guarantee a memorable experience.

Some 25,000 guillemots, 10,000 pairs of gannets and several thousand fulmars, kittiwakes and puffins crowd its noisy ledges during the breeding season.

Look out for seals in the surrounding seas and marauding great skuas in the moorland interior.

Directions

How to get here

Car

Take the car ferry from Lerwick to Bressay then follow the Noss signs for three miles to the car park. There is a 0.5 mile steep farm track leading from the car park to the Noss inflatable ferry. Please take care as rocks leading to the ferry point, and leading from the ferry point on the Noss side, may be slippery. Then take the Noss ferry for a three minute crossing. Ferry charges are £3 for adults, £1.50 for children. The ferry operates daily between 1000 and 1700 (except Monday and Thursday) from late April to end of August. The Noss crossing requires the ability to get into an inflatable boat. If you think that you will require help to board the ferry, please contact the local SNH office in advance.
