“Lovely walk, great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

You need good walking shoes but the path is paved about half the way then is hard packed earth. The views along the way are beautiful. There are benches sprinkled along the way until De'il's Haid. Pack a lunch and a thermos of tea and have a picnic along the way, just know there are no rubbish bins so you'll need to take your rubbish out with you. It was a great way to get some exercise and to see some great vistas.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

I've never reached Auchmithie because it's a long walk and I didn't still have time but even the little piece that I've done is stunning, absolutely amazing. Every time that I turn on a cliff it's a new, exciting experience. Good shoes are requested, you have to be fit for going down the cliffs (thing that I cannot do :-( ) but really everyone can walk there and enjoy the landscape, you can always rest on a bench and turn back if you're tired. If you have a dog bring him with you: he'll be happy about it!

“This is something very special.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

You will have to be reasonably fit to walk along these cliff tops, but even if you only go a little way along it is well worth it. Good footwear is advisable as you may want to venture out a little on the cliffs. The wildlife and the chance to see dolphins, seals and the odd shark makes it special. The path is narrow but for the hiker or nature watcher this is a must.

“Sea view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The views are stunning and the smell of the sea is lovely
The path is a bit small and sometimes you have to walk in a row.

“Spectacular walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

These are amongst the most spectacular cliffs in Scotland, and can be admired by a surfaced and clearly marked cliff top path between Arbroath and Auchmithie. On the route, there are many chances to leave the path (where safe) to explore some of the many caves along the way and to see features like the Needle's E'e or the De'il's Heid which have been sculpted by the seas. There are also inlets which had been caves thousands of years ago before their roofs collapsed through the constant actions of the seas. The walk is easy enough to be tackled by most ages, but a close eye should be kept on children and dogs should be kept on a lead. And at the end of the walk, you can always treat yourself to a fine meal in the cosy But And Ben restaurant in Auchmithie.
