Hill of White Hamars

Hill of White Hamars has attractive coastal cliffs with caves, natural arches, stacks and a large blow-hole. The many narrow inlets provide good opportunities for short-range viewing of cliff-nesting seabirds. Hill of White Hamars was the first Scottish Wildlife Trust reserve established to protect the endangered Scottish primrose.


The reserve lies on the south coast of Walls extending over approximately 1.7km (1.1 miles) of shoreline from the east of Helliack to the west of Rise Geo, and extending about 1km inland over, and to the northeast of, the Hill of White Hamar.

Hill of White Hamars is a working sheep farm.

Access to the reserve is from the car park; paths are waymarked.
