Atlantic Puffin

From the land, comes the cloth, comes the language…


The Atlantic, or common puffin is one of the most loved sea birds of the Hebrides, and it’s easy to see why. These dapper little characters make burrows their homes on our remote coastlines during spring and summer, adding bumbling splashes of colour to the cliff-sides. The elegance they perhaps lack in flight, they make up for in their agility under the waves, showing where lie their true talents – sea birds in a puffin’s playground!
