  • Site of interest with the remnants of WW2 Yesnaby lookout station. Good place to find wild flowers including the Scottish Primrose. Superb coastal walking. Good views. Car parking available, but no toilet facilities.
  • Great views. Nice sea stacks and bird life. Can be windy. Bring a warm and waterproof coat, even in summer. Opportunities for a swim on truly warm days or for those with hardy lifestyles. Walks along the cliffs are nice with views as far as the Old Man of Hoy on clear days. Free parking at some old abandoned remains of buildings. No toilets. Some information panels with history about surrounding sites.
