The island of Noss is renowned as one of Europe's finest wildlife sites. Its 180 metre high sea cliffs - dramatic at any time of year - come to life in summer when tens of thousand of seabirds return here to nest. This small island has one of the most easily reached seabird colonies where you can experience these wonderful creatures close-up. Come to Noss and discover for yourself the sights, sounds and smells of this seabird skyscraper.
