Faray and Holm of Faray
Special Areas of Conservation (Habitats Directive)
The site is not subject to any direct pressures, and visitor numbers are low, especially during the grey seal pupping season. A small amount of creel fishing takes place around the islands which is compatible with the interests of the site.
This site is also an OSPAR marine protected area: http://mpa.ospar.org/home_ospar/mpa_datasheets/an_mpa_datasheet_en?wdpaid=555556990&gid=1520
