Site description
A small group of offshore islands in north-east åland. Most of the islands are bare and rocky, but some of the biggest are sparsely forested. On the eastern side of Mulklobb, most of the auks breed between mounds of rocks. Auks and gulls benefit from the site's proximity to productive marine areas. The area is quite peaceful due to its situation away from ship and boat channels.

Key biodiversity
An important breeding area for auks (Alca torda and Cepphus grylle).
