Bow Fiddle rock was a great stop along the NE Coast. The cliff top views were great, but it's definitely worth going down to the beach. It's a little steep, but honestly not bad at all. Great picture opportunities abound.

Absolutely beautiful rock formation. Try to photograph it with sun position in mind. You can get to the rock either by walking from Cullen Beach...or view from Portknockie. Lovely!

Lovely walk down to get photos from every angle. Park close by and just watch your footing especially when wet but well worth the effort.
