Fairy Glen RSPB Reserve

The tall, friable cliffs here are earth pillars, a rare feature created when a glacier recedes.

Please keep your dog under close control, particularly during the nesting season for birds. 

Keep an eye open for the otters which live up the glen.  One uses a local boat as a larder, hoarding tasty but smelly titbits such as headless eels and crabs.

If you spot the 'penny log' near one of the rock-pools, don't be fooled: this is left over from a 1970s film set and is not as old as it looks, though many will tell you it has been there for much longer!
