The Hobbister Reserve is a heather moor bounded by the sea. The cliffs are not particularly high, and are ideal for breeding Black Guillemot and European Shag. Red Grouse breed here, as well as a number of Stonechat and Rock Pipits pairs.

Nearby Waukmill Bay has a large sandy tidal flat which is very attractive to shorebirds and gulls. Bar-Tailed Godwit were present in mid July on my visit there.
