RSPB Scotland 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 and we 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.

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.

Open at all times.

Entry is free but donations to help us continue our work are welcomed.

This nature reserve is important for wildlife. RSPB Scotland welcomes responsible access, in line with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. During the ground-nesting bird breeding season (1 April to 15 August) we would ask that you keep your dog close to you, preferably on a short lead and please clean up after your dog.
