Basically a windy cliff for watching birds in the archipelago. During migration you may have Long-tailed Duck , Velvet Scoter, Common Scoter , Arctic Skua (Parasitic Jaeger). Out on the small rocky islands Black Guillemot nest. Not visible without a scope or during bad weather. White-tailed Eagle is a common sight. Also check out the forest birds while walking (1 km) to the spot.



For a parking spot see the P on the map. The area is best explored on foot or bike. From the parking it's about 1 km through forest to the cliff.
