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....

Bullers of Buchan is a spectacular bit of coastline where seabirds like kittiwake, fulmars, guillemot, shag and puffin cling to the cliffs. This is not a packaged tourist attraction and there are no guardrails, so common sense needs to rule – especially with children. The path out to the headline is narrow and muddy, but that is where you are... More

Not been back to the Bullers for a while but it is a very fine place to go and enjoy large events. The Ythan Fiddlers from Ellon have used it for some of its special get togethers. Catering was very friendly and efficient. If travelling in the North East of Scotland you can't do much better.

We walked up to the bullers from Cruden Bay via slains castle. This is a great walk with wonderful sea views and lots of wild birds including Buzzards, gulls and robins on this last trip. Ground can be a bit boggy so good shoes recommended, also gauze can get in the patway so cover your legs. The bullers are beautiful,... More

Always a fantastically rewarding walk whatever the weather is like, beautiful on a summers day but for me even more enjoyable on a wild and windy day when the inrushing sea is forced up and out of what could almost be described as a whales blowhole. Because of the cliff side exposure keep your children close and your dogs on... More

you do not need your own transport to see this attraction as public transport will drop you off and pick you up by the car park and the buses run every hour. If like me you have a dog then like my one they will enjoy the walk, but keep it on a tight lead as you would not want... More

Loved this walk was amazing views and very picturesque. Walked from cruden bay to the bullers and back, took a few hours, but was worth it because you get to see the castle at the start near cruden bay, also walk along the beach at fraserburgh too which is nice.

Situated just north of Cruden Bay with it's own car park. It is about a 5 minute walk from the car park. It is unsuitable for wheel chair users as the path there is very narrow, uneven and on the cliff edge. Lots of beautiful and unusual butterflies on the path. The rock formation is stunning and if in the... More

Just happened across this place one Sunday while out for a drive, the scenery is certainly dramatic, not for the faint hearted, as its plunging cliffs, & you walk very near the edge, but it was a beautiful day & it is well worth a visit. You could almost see the smugglers & the places where they could hide here
