RSPB-Ramsey Island & Grassholm Island

Attractions

Ramsey Island is the most dramatic and rugged of all the Pembrokeshire islands and is a wild and beautiful place. Ramsey is a Special Protection Area for chough and the grassland, kept short and grazed by our flock of up to 200 Welsh mountain sheep, provides them with the perfect feeding ground. The island also has its very own sheepdog. In spring and summer look for peregrines and ravens nesting on the impressive west coast cliffs. You can also scan the stone walls for wheaters and little owls or peek at the grey seal pups which litter Ramsey’s beaches from mid-August onwards. In Autumn, revel in the sight and smell of some of the finest coastal heathland in Wales and catch a glimpse of feeding porpoises in Ramsey Sound. There is a small shop on the island and refreshments are available. Book your boat trip onto the island with Thousand Islands Expeditions.

Grassholm Island is a tiny white speck of land, 7 miles from the coast. As you approach the island, you begin to understand why it’s white. It’s home to 36,000 pairs of breeding gannets, the only gannet colony in Wales and third largest in the UK. The island comes alive in early spring, with gannets returning to the island from late February onwards. The air is filled with males returning with nesting materials keen to establish territory ready to attract a female. Grassholm has a strict no landing policy due to the national and conservational importance this Island holds. You can get a boat trip around Grassholm with Thousand Island Expeditions.

Review

“ I’ve heard it in the chillest land - And on the strangest sea”. Emily Dickinson.
We’re so lucky in the UK to have such vast, untouched areas of outstanding beauty. Perhaps the nearest you ever come to wildlife is watching the sparrows in the hedge next door, or admiring the moving patchwork quilt of pigeons in the town centre. A trip to an RSPB reserve, will fill up all the missing spaces in your heart and Soul, that can only be filled by experiencing the beauty and wonder of nature. RSPB Ramsey Island & Grassholm bewitches visitors with its spectacular bird cliffs, coastal scenery and heathland. Ramsey Island is just one kilometre off St. David’s Head in Pembrokeshire in southwest Wales. Take a magical boat trip and view the islands of Ramsey, Skomer and Grassholm. The whole experience is unforgettable for all ages.
