Birding Tours

THE THREE SISTERS SAUNTER is a unique Guided Nature Ramble starting from the Three Sisters hut heading to the beach, and covers all aspects of environment, birds, shipwrecks and historical background. Jutting into the sea are the Three Sister’s promontories with caves, weird shapes and a boiling cauldron. Peer down from sheer cliffs onto wave-cut platforms that support a plethora of wading birds.

Enjoy the abundant diversity of plant life that thrives on The Sisters despite harsh conditions. Hear about the shipwrecks along this stretch of coast and fascinating local history, some stories dating back to the 1400’s.

This is an experience for the whole family : Duration 2½ hours
