Troup Head RSPB
Place Category: Visitor Attraction
Pack your walking boots and your binoculars; you are in for a treat. Drive across rolling hills, intermittent (stunning) sea views, through farmyards and ever increasing track roads, then follow the uneven paths on foot (everything is well sign posted) to discover Scotland’s only mainland gannet colony. The views of their nesting area are superb – watch them ‘fall’ off the cliff to swoop in glorious circles with their black wing tips on view for all to see. Absolutely fantastic. Well worth a visit, even if you’re not a bird-watcher, the views are spectacular.
