“Scotland At It's Best”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Once you figure out where to go, the bus stop is quite far from the location it's worth it. Clifftop walks, sheer drops stunning scenery it's all on offer. Crashing waves breaking on the rocks, flowing the passages caused by natural erosion, countless sea birds and of course the jockeys Puffins lots of Puffins. All this and just down the road Castle Dracula!

“A good place to see puffins”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is one of the few places in Aberdeenshire where you can see puffins close up. The walk along some parts of the cliff tops is a bit precarious - avoid getting close to the edge if you are unsteady on your feet or the grass is wet. However, if you are OK to get yourself to one of the small headlands you will be able to find puffins and other seabirds at reasonably close range. the best time of year to see puffins and other seabirds is between April and July.

“breathtaking but be careful!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

this hidden gem is well worthwhile a visit. It is off the main road to Peterhead just a short distance from Cruden Bay which is also well worth a visit. At the bullers you can see where the sea has carved a hole in the rock and it is truly spectacular. It is not suitable for small children due to the steep cliffs.
