Shetland: Sumburgh Head

Shetland Islands are all about absolutely spectacular nature. At the very southern tip of the island chain lies Sumburgh Head – a dramatic headland with tall 100m high sea cliffs and a picturesque lighthouse. The Sumburgh Head Lighthouse dates to 1821. Wildlife is abound here – offshore cliffs are covered with thousands of birds and the air is filled with flying seagulls and puffins. The headland is also famous for being able to spot orcas just beneath the cliffs.
