Puffin Spotting at the Castle o’Burrian

The Castle o’Burrian is well known in Orkney as one of the best and easiest places to see puffins close up. Here, between late April and mid August, as many as 200-300 birds nest on the stack and can be viewed from the adjacent cliffs. Building remains on the top of the stack are said to have been an early Christian hermitage.
