Much of North Hoy is owned by the RSPB, where a large variety of birds live and breed. Off the west coast of the reserve towers The Old Man of Hoy, a 137m sea stack and is, perhaps, Orkney's most famous landmark and a great place to see puffins.
Local wild flowers and bird life make this a must for naturalists to visit. The remainder of the island is a fascinating variety of hills, dramatic coastal scenery and low-lying fertile land.
