Noss, Noss, Shetland Islands

Noss is a small island neighbouring Bressay in the Shetland Islands. Once an inhabited island, the remaining population left in 1939 and now Noss is a sheep farm and a National Nature Reserve.

The highest point on Noss stands at 181m and on a clear day you can see most of Shetland. The island itself is heaving with bird activity as the imposing cliffs of Noup house thousands of seabirds.

Access to Noss is via a seasonal ferry service, maintained by the reserve’s wildlife wardens. for more details see
