the scenery here is stunning , especially if you are an avid bird watcher! Cliffs spectacular but very dangerous... many a person has ended there lives there ( notorious suicide spot). Well worth a visit though on a dry sunny day. Village or cluster of houses should I say are quaint!

We went on a usual windy Buchan day. Walked a good bit along but the path gets narrower and less safe the further you go. Lots of birds to see if your into bird watching. Been and seen but wouldnt rush back.

Park your car in the small car park and then walk along the cliff edge. Be careful as you walk as it can be slippery if it had rained ! In season you will see many sea birds. Can be bracing walk if a windy day ! Really blows the cobwebs away !!

beautiful views, lots of sea birds including a large number of puffins, I would bring small children along as there are narrow but well kept paths along cliff edges, go on a dry day as it can be treacherous when the ground starts to get muddy

Don't miss this if on the way to Cruden Bay. Well sign-posted and good parking area. Can be quite a long walk if you are unsteady on your feet but worth it to see the bird life - amazing. Time certainly flies at this location.

Some of the best sea cliffs just north of Cruden Bay great for pictures and sea birds, but be careful they are dangerous and not many who have fallen over have come back to tell the tail?

A picturesque coastal walk leads to the Bullers of Buchan, a collapsed sea cave north of Cruden Bay. This is a haven for birds and birdwatchers. We spent a lovely half hour sitting on the grass watching the birds swoop and glide above us and listening to the sea crash against the rocks and the seagulls squawk in the wind.... More

I went here possible with higher expetations than it deserved. From the outset it was doomed with over crowded parking near by householders who to say the least were disgruntled by tourist walking past there homes to get to the site . And then you arive and

I lived in Aberdeen for many years without knowing about this place and didn't imagine you could see Puffins just a 20 minute drive North! The cliff and rock formations are incredible, reminded me of something from Arches National Park in America (but in the sea :)). Should be visited by anyone looking for a walk or a good photo....
