Welcome to Foula
Out in the Atlantic Ocean, about 15 miles southwest of Walls, stands the remote, windswept island of Foula (Bird Island). Seen from Mainland it has a distinctive outline, rising to a series of peaks – the highest point is Da Sneug (418m) – then dropping dramatically to the sea at the cliffs of Da Kame (376m). It competes with Fair Isle for the title of Britain’s most isolated community, with just a handful of human inhabitants, a scattering of Shetland ponies and 1500 sheep, plus 500,000 seabirds, including the rare Leach’s petrel and Manx shearwater, and the world's largest colony of great skuas.
