Westray Isle

Northern Isles

‘Queen of the North Isles’, Westray is one of Orkney’s most prosperous islands, engaged in farming and fishing. Its wide array of archaeological sites range from prehistoric settlements to medieval kirks. Wildlife and flora flourish, with seals and the extraordinary bird cliffs at Noup Head, nested by Arctic tern, gannet, guillemot, corncrake, razorbill, fulmar, teal, shoveller, tufted duck and puffin.
