Rank : 9.3 (average on 16 votes)

If you know this place, give your vote:  

Coordinates : 55.617654,-1.649694 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : islands dedicated to nesting seabirds. Puffins, shags, Urie, Magpies Marine, Sterne of various types, but also various types of gulls seals.

Recommended equipment : as you go on the island to walk among the birds nidifcanti, a 70-200 can give satisfaction. To devote himself to the birds in flight and have a good number of occasions, need to climb focal length.

Best months : I would say for nesting from mid June to end of July or so.

How to get there : recommended air travel "low cost" up to Edinburgh or Glasgow or NewCastle. From there, the rental car to get to the port of Seahouses where you can catch boats to the Farne.

Visits : the port of Seahouses found several shacks with different solutions for the visit to be with just one lap into the sea, either stay on the islands. The offer is the most common of all + one hour spent on one of the islands (Inner Farne eg open only in the afternoon). Some even offer an all day trip (2 hours + 2 hours Staple hours on Inner Farne). In a few go on Longstone, the third and last island visited. You can also come to an agreement for customized solution, taking a boat there and a different boat to return, to prolong their stay on the island rspetto scheduled time. The port should not be completely dry at low tide (unlike North Berwick that I mentioned for the visit to the Bass Rock), so departure times are fixed and reliable. Reliable to the extent permitted by the passing of time, because even in the days of rough seas we sail. And if you sail but sea conditions worsen, it may be (most unlikely but possible) that you do not arrive to the island (at the discretion of the captain). As for the visit to the Farne, to specify that you have to pay in addition to the boatman about £ 5 each island you visit (go to the Trust). Islands in the path is not free, but is limited to paths with comfortable cordicina to delimit them. You can run quietly down the path only focus on Inner Farne, when you pass by the terns, that if they see you as a threat to the nest in the vicinity (ie always) fly up to peck on the head. So send out your friend and get ready to shoot. Better, however, that caught bombarded :-)

Notes : You may combine this visit with other historical background (castles, Roman ruins ..) or natural (eg Bass Rock in about 1 hour by car), or whatever you want :). The town of Seahouses is quite limited in supply, even if it is cheaper than North Berwick that I spoke to Bass Rock (see here). Limited except for places to sleep in that bed and breakfast, camping, bungalow permanent, etc., offers enough places. Almost all occupied at the time of our visit. At the lean limit at the Tourist Information, to find a roof. This is England, but we are right on the border, the border with Scotland. For this reason it may be a valid itinerary for visitors to Scotland. For rainy days and more, must be studied in advance other points of interest. Near Seahouses is a restored castle and town (Bamburgh Castle) and about 10 miles the ruins of another castle, whose name escapes me. But the area is full of historical reasons (even the Holy ́siola Islands) as long as you move in the car.
