RSPB Dunnet Head nature reserve
The most northerly point in mainland Britain, Dunnet Head has stunning sea cliffs and coastal grassland. These are home to puffins, razorbills, guillemots, fulmars, kittiwakes, shags and cormorants, and RSPB are undertaking annual seabird monitoring work as part of national surveys to contribute to our knowledge of how seabirds are doing. Above the cliffs are some very diverse coastal heathland and grassland habitats with special plants such as spring squill, thrift and roseroot.
The RSPB started to manage this site in May 2008 and, as yet, there are no visitor facilities beyond the car park and some interpretation panels. Of strategic importance during World War II, Dunnet Head has a number of old military buildings still standing on site. We ask that you take care when visiting this site, keeping dogs and children under close supervision.
