Lovely island with plenty to do.
Puffins (May to early August) lovely beaches s castle and then a day trip to Papay.
Needs three days to appreciate it.
Take your time - it's worth it.

A day trip to westray is a must if you are visiting the island. We got the 7.20 ferry out and the 18.30 back so I was very worried that there wouldn’t be enough to do for my eight year old and she would get bored but I was wrong.
We started off the day with a lovely walk on one of the many beaches.
Next a stop at Pierowall, pottering around the few shops there followed by lunch at the hotel (a must). Took a trip to see the tiny airport, followed by a swim in the sea.
Next a trip to Noups Head, a short look around Noltland Castle and back to the boat with a quick stop to see the puffins. Superb day

My stay on the island was too short, so I’ll come back with the Wife. Interestingly others I met all said the same that they were extending their stay. Lots to see and experience on many levels with good options and choices of accommodation. Great wildlife. Recommend.

A day trip to this island is perfectly manageable as long as you have your own car (or bike) otherwise your visit will be limited. Orkney Ferries crossing takes 1 hour 25 minutes from Kirkwall, the first crossing at 0720 and the last return at 1755. This gives you approx 9 hrs on the island. What to do and see: Noup Head in the north for wild coastline, last just over a mile on rough track and perhaps only suitable for SUVs and the like, but you can walk it. Saw puffins there. However the best sightings I had of puffins was on the south of the island at Castle o’ Burrian, loads of them in early June. The main settlement is Pierowall, interesting and informative Westray Heritage Centre. Nearby, and worth visiting, are the ruins of Noltland Castle (free). We had lunch at the Groatie Buckie (part of the WI Rendall grocery store), and can recommend it. We also called at the Wheeling Steen Gallery (north of Pierowall) for coffee and to look at the photos and paintings. Great contemporary design of gallery incorporating the restored cabin of a 19th century shipwreck. Was it worth the nearly £60 return fare from Kirkwall, the answer is yes.

We try to visit Orkney every year and then do a day trip to a different island. Westray is easy to get to by ferry and I would recommend if you are only there for a day then consider doing westrak yours.
Westray is a beautiful island with stunning scenery and lovely beaches.

We took the morning ferry to Westray and came back on the evening ferry, giving us a whole day to explore and enjoy ourselves.
We visited the following sites and attractions (Each and every one of them reviewed by me separately) - Castle of Burrian (Puffins!!), Hume Sweet Hume, Pierowall Hotel (Food), Noup Head lighthouse and cliffs, The Airport and the Wheeling Steen Gallery.
Lots to do and lots to see.
We hardly managed to squeeze everything into one day.
Be sure to spend at least a full day on the Island.
Lovely Island!! Loved It!!

This is a very attractive island with lots to see and especially good for those who are bird watchers. The cliffs are dramatic and full of sea birds and you could watch then fly and feed their young for hours. Watch the shortest flight in possibly the world as the small aircraft heads to and from Papa Westray..

We came on the noon boat from Kirkwall to have a short visit and we wish we came for a few days or at least with the early morning boat so we could spend some more time about the isle. Quite a few gems to see, the Castle, Noup head Light house,the peedie airport that has the shortest flight in the world to Papa westray,the beaches with the seals,and the cliffs with puffins,the lovely local heritage center is a must as well,its a marvelous place!
