The Burwick Coastal Walk follows a cliff top path along the west coast of South Ronaldsay. On a clear day there are stunning views over Scapa Flow, the islands and over the Pentland Firth to Caithness.

There are plenty of opportunities to spot a variety of wildlife throughout the summer months including seabirds, seals, wildflowers, insects and maybe even some cetaceans if we are very lucky.

This is a linear walk so we will return by the same route.

It is possible to extend this walk if you are interested in a longer walk.

Please wear walking boots, and bring warm waterproof clothing, a drink and a snack.

NB It is not currently possible to share binoculars so please bring your own.
