This extraordinary place is famous for its amazing wildlife, stunning scenery, and superb walks. From the simple beauty of the Lady's-slipper Orchid to the shining sands of Morecambe Bay, the area is simply awe-inspiring - full of natural spectacles and a surprise around every corner.
Jack Scout & Heald Brow
Sitting on the Giant’s Seat at sunset is one of Britain’s ‘must do’ spectacles. Listen out for Oystercatchers and Curlews on the sands, warblers and Blackbirds on the land, and the sea lapping below. As one of only two cliffs in the area, Jack Scout provides a good breeding ground for song-birds as well as feeding places for weary migrant-birds passing through.
The vegetation on the low cliffs jutting out into Morecambe Bay is carefully managed by the National Trust to maintain species rich limestone grassland with 230 different types of plants recorded! Look out for the yellow flower of Rockrose all summer or Autumn Lady’s Tresses from late July.
