Yesnaby on the west coast of the main Orkney Island is an area of great natural beauty famed for its rugged, sandstone coast.
Yesnaby is popular with rock climbers, who come to climb Yesnaby Castle, a sea stack off the coast. The Old Man of Hoy is another stack on Orkney which draws climbers from all over Britain and abroad.
The Orkney coast, especially on Westray, is also popular with another colorful visitor - the puffin - who come to breed between May and August.
