RSPB Scotland Birsay Moors nature reserve

If you enjoy the solemn grandeur of moorland landscape, the Orkney moors can be a wonderful place to visit, full of wild and windswept beauty. Come during the summer to see hen harriers, short-eared owls and elegant Arctic skuas nesting. Time spent in our Burgar Hill hide should also reward you with spectacular views of breeding red-throated divers.

Open at all times

Free entry but donations to help us continue our work here are welcomed

Information for families

Wildlife Explorer backpacks are available from the Stromness office. These contain binoculars, identification guides for birds and other species, bug jars etc. to help children get the most from their visit.

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.
