They're not the highest cliffs but they're stunning and there is a bit to park at and they're easy to find too. There is a natural arch. It's a stunning bit of coastline. Drive towards Peterhead and there's a further parking place with a stunning...More

We hiked from the northern car park for the Bullers of Buchan down to Slains' Castle and into the town of Port Erroll on the coastal trail. The views along the cliffs were beautiful, and it was a great way to spend the morning.

Nearly missed the sign on the road, and would have been very sad to have missed seeing these. Short walk from the small car park to an amazing sight

Beautiful place to hang with friends. Nice coastal walk but have to be more careful due to wind and some slippery walk path. But overall it’s a must see location.

If you happen to be on the A975 and near Cruden Bay, this is a sight not to be missed. Not only is it a beautiful place but watching the birds nesting and flying about the rocks was something I have never seen! The bird...More

Spectacular cliffs with equally spectacular bird life. Well worth a visit and there’s a car park with everything we’ll sign posted
