Yesnasby Sea Cliffs

Walking on Orkney

Hike to ancient stone age sites and cross the turbulent waters between the islands of Hoy and Westray, home to orcas, seals and ship wrecks. Walk to the 140 m sea stack, the Old Man of Hoy, where the cliffs throng with seabirds. Trails lined with rare wild flowers lead you through a land of Neolithic architecture and Viking heritage.
