'The Noss National Nature Reserve is one of over 50 reserves in Scotland owned or managed by Scottish Natural Heritage. Noss comes from the Norse word for "nose", an appropriate name for this sharply pointed island. From its highest point, the 181 metre Noup, on a clear day you can see the farthest parts of Shetland. Stained white and heaving with activity, the towering cliffs of the Noup are plastered with birds. The natural skyscraper houses a fascinating variety of seabirds from puffins and fulmars at the top to guillemots and razorbills in the basement.' (
