Ramsey Island

Ramsey Island comprises 640 acres and is currently owned and run by the RSPB as a bird reserve. Its early history saw it owned by the Church until the early 1900’s when it was sold into private ownership and farmed initially as a general farm until the 1960’s, and later as a deer farm.

The RSPB bought the island in the early 1990’s because of its importance as a breeding site for endangered species such as the chough and the peregrine. They now manage the island and have a full time warden and also volunteers who help out during the summer months. The island is open to visitors on a daily basis throughout the summer months.

Voyaging around Ramsey is simply spectacular as the island provides a wealth of wildlife, spectacular scenery and natural heritage.

Our Ramsey Island boat trip is the perfect way to experience the sights, sounds and wildlife of Ramsey.
