Discounts and special offers in 2018 and 2019

Young person's discount: £35 per person per night in 2018

A limited number of places are available for visitors aged under 25 at the time of their visit at this special rate in a shared room.

Spring special (20th April to 11th May): all rooms £60 per person per night in 2018 (£65 in 2019)

With returning seabirds, migrants and early flowers (and often some of the finest weather of the year) why not get in early and enjoy this fabulous offer at a stunning time of year.

August discount (9th to 31st): all rooms £60 per person per night in 2018 (not available in 2019)

Early August usually sees plenty of Puffins still around and the peak of our Storm Petrel ringing, with more migrant birds appearing as the month progresses, often including some early autumn rarities. August is often the best month for the chance of seeing dolphins and whales offshore, whilst the island's flowers add extra interest.

Rarity finders' late autumn offer (15th to 31st October): all rooms £60 per person per night in 2018 (£65 in 2019)

Rufous-tailed Robin, Chestnut-eared Bunting, Siberian Rubythroats, Black-faced Bunting, Harlequin, Brown Shrike, Savannah Sparrow, Dusky Thrush, Rock Thrush, Steppe Grey Shrike, Rufous Turtle Dove, Blyth's Pipit, Blackpoll Warbler and several Pine Buntings are just some of the headline birds from late October on Fair Isle, whilst there can be impressive falls of thrushes, finches, Woodcock and other common species to enjoy as well as good selection of scarcities. Why not visit at what might be the best time for you to find your own mega.
