VISITORS COME TO WESTRAY to relax and get away from their busy lives "sooth". We like to think of them coming here to enjoy "the sound of silence". The island has plenty of places to go and see, walks along the beach or the cliff, and many come here to see the birdlife. There is the Noup Head RSPB reserve where all kinds of seabirds nest, not to mention the puffins both there and at Castle o'Burrian, from late April to early August. The lochs of Burness, Swartmill and Saintear all attract birdlife along with the White Moss just a short walk from the hotel.
