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 to see cliff-nesting seabirds. The reserve is also full of wild flowers in spring.
The reserve lies on the south coast of South Walls, Orkney, extending over 1.1 miles of shoreline from the east of Helliack to the west of Rise Geo, and about 0.6 miles inland over the Hill of White Hamars. Most people arrive via the Houton-Lyness ferry. Turn left onto the B9047 and continue to the end of the causeway to South Walls, and take the minor road towards Cantick. After 1.5 miles, turn right to Snelsetter. Follow the track and you should find parking just before the buildings.
Access to the reserve is from the car-park. Footpaths are waymarked.
Hil of White Hamars is a working sheep farm. Please keep dogs under close control at all times.
