“Stunning hike!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2016 via mobile

Setting off on a windy morning from Stonehaven along the path,this hike got better and better. Expect a bit of everything,wind,sun,rain the next minute and fun the whole time! The hike along the coastal fields and cliffs is beyond gorgeous and the view of Dunnottar the whole way just adds to your anticipation. Dunnottar is wonderful . Being able to explore every corner,walk the worn steps of history and catch the view from every window, small and large leaves you with full sense of life there. Incredible!! I would recommend going very early to enjoy it before the crowds.

“Wonderful experience on a sunny day.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2016

Wonderful experience on a sunny day.
It is not good for difficulty walking. If possible, walk along the coast to Stonehaven. and eat a good dinner.
