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

Very pretty area to visit, with excellent views along the coastline. It is a natural area with unique rock formation. Well worth a visit.

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

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
