Boat Trips


Every morning, subject to tide conditions, we will be offering a unique experience to sail from Burwick Harbour. Boat trips run from mid May to mid August.




During the trip we will sail past the

Pentland Skerries. This is a group of

four uninhabited islands lying in the

Pentland Firth, northeast of Duncansby

Head and 2.5 miles south of South








You will have a chance to see breeding pairs of Puffins. There are also Terns, Gannets, Bonxies, Fulmars, Kitewakes, Razorbills, Guillemots, Shags and Cormorants. These birds will be viewed from the boat. We do not land on the island. There is also a colony of around 1,000 common and grey seals.


All tours will have the option of dining at the Skerries Bistro. The Bistro has a range of local food, including fresh fish and shellfish. Bookings are advisable for both lunch and evening meals. For more information please check the Skerries Bistro page.
