When we went it was a beautiful blue sky day and it wasn't windy. The views are stunning however if your taking a child or dog or even an oap keep them under control as the edge is very near the cliff face. The views are exception though. Their is also a car park at the beginning of the track... More

i cannot believe that the Scottish tourist board do not make more of their natural attractions! This is a fantastic cove, at CruddenBay, with incredible rocks and a very interesting story. There are birds galore and some very challenging paths for those who like that sort of thing (being a scaredy-cat myself i stuck to the safer ones) this place... More

Beautiful sites, lovely short hike, great place to spread a blanket and have a picnic. Great for bird watching,. Saw some jelly fish in the water.

It was a Sunday so frequency of public transport wasn't great. We had to wait for the bus to Cruden bay for 30 minutes at the Aberdeen exhibition centre bus stop. Finally the driver was very kind to drop us at the right bus stop. We started our walk from the car park near Cruden bay post office. It starts... More

It's a great place! We scored with the weather hugely. At just before 9am midweek, we were the only people present which was rather nice. Some of the tracks look dangerous so we avoided those and took the more travelled paths. We saw one Puffin only as we were quite late in the season. I was delighted. Definitely worth a... More

Awesome was the word the bairn used soon as she saw the arch with the sea birds flying all around it and awesome it was. If you like birds, puffins especially or just love to watch the sea crashing against the shore head along. Not far from Aberdeen a wee gem.

We were looking to get out of the city and this was a nice attraction - there isn't much to see but the cliffs are stunning and on a clear day you can see out to sea. Good walk in both direction - we only took one route but it was very picturesque - no cafe or shelter - but... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
