Make sure you park by the farm on the corner ( rather than drive all the way as the track is passable but tough)
From May to early August the cliffs are alive with bird life. Gannets are amazing.
Circular walk brings you back to the farm.
Look out for Whales and dolphins - you never know!

Lovely walk with lots of birds. Got some good photos! Make sure you’re wrapped up as the wind can be fierce!

Balade de 8,8 km depuis le parking.
On monte jusqu'au phare par un sentier en cailloux (si vous avez un véhicule adapté vous pouvez débuter la balade du phare), ensuite on suit le petit chemin pédestre dans la lande au milieu des moutons.
Falaises vertigineuses avec beaucoup d'oiseaux et notamment une grosse colonie de fous de bassan.
La seule déception... Pas de puffin. Et oui tout nous vente les puffins mais ces petits pingouins sont en mer au mois d'août. Si vous souhaitez les voir il faut venir en mai, juin et juillet !
Mais même sans puffin c'est une balade extraordinaire.

There’s so much to see and enjoy walking up to the lighthouse. The cliffs and birdwatching are all amazing ..... just don’t look over or slip!! You can see the seals basking in the rocks below. Recommend.

Visited here as part of our day trip to Westray. We would never have found it without our superb guide (Westreek tours).

The walk was long tried to return on the cliff path. No markings and hard to see track so became disorganised . Blowing a gale. Can't enter grounds as gate locked.
Thought over rated for the effort

Noup Head is at the northern end of Westray Island.
To get there you drive to North Hill and continue on a dirt road to the lighthouse.
The drive is pretty in itself, with great views all along.
Noup Head Lighthouse is perched atop massive and impressive cliffs.....Another Land's End.
Park next to the lighthouse, read the plaque to learn about this and other lighthouses built by the Stevenson family.
Then take the trail to the left (West( along the beautiful cliff tops.
The cliffs are abundant with Gannet nests. You can hear their racket clearly and watch them dive into the water for fish.
The views are breathtaking.
If you're lucky, this is a good spot to see whales as well.
Magnificent!! A Definite Must!!
