Farne Islands

The Farne Islands, just off the Northumberland Coast near Bamburgh, is a nature conservation area run by the National Trust.

Once the home of St. Cuthbert, who died on the island in 687 AD, the island is now home to one of Britain's largest seabird colonies with over 20 species of different birds, including 37000 pairs of puffins. It is also home to a grey seal colony, where over 1000 pups are born every autumn. The only access to the island is by boat from Seahouses Harbour and no dogs (including assistance dogs) are allowed on the island.
