Hermaness National Nature Reserve
Hermaness is a National Nature Reserve designated in 1955 and is currently managed by Scottish Natural Heritage, although the land remains in the ownership of the Edmondston family of Baltasound, who are still major landowners on Unst.  It is of note for its breeding fulmars, gannets, shags, great skuas, puffins and guillemots. 
Hermaness was home to a black-browed albatross - an extreme rarity in the Northern Hemisphere - every summer from 1972 until 1995 (except 1988 and 1989). This bird, nicknamed 'Albert', proved a major attraction to birdwatchers.
