We're excited to announce that Fowlsheugh has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence on TripAdvisor!
We are really grateful to everyone who takes the time to give us feedback and really pleased to read all your nice comments. We can only take some of the credit as it's the seabird city spectacle and the full sight, sound and smell experience that is responsible for so many people loving the reserve.
It's an important place: more than 100,000 seabirds return each year to breed at Fowlsheugh and it is internationally important because of the major numbers of seabirds that breed there. In recognition of its importance the cliffs are designated a Special Protection Area under European law.
Seabirds have been struggling in Scotland in recent decades (you can more read about that here, here and here) but we're hoping for another good year with lots of healthy chicks.
If you visit Fowlsheugh or any of our other reserves this summer, we'd love to hear from you and to see your photos. You can find us on Facebook and Twitter.
