Went here on a recommendation from a fellow hobbyist photographer. Absolutely fell in love. Was in a trance staring at the gorgeous blue water and thinking of the possibilities if I had had the time to have a proper wander around the area.

A bit of a tricky place to find but once there it affords spectacular views - its very important to stay back from the edge!

Went several time to watch puffins which were their each time with a wide range of other nesting sea birds. Not a place to take young children which is a shame

Walk from Cruden bay to Bullers of Buchan, which can be extended to Boddam is great specially during spring and summers when all the senses are overpowered by huge numbers of birds. Its a paradise for bird watchers and nature lovers. On way you can visit the Slain's castle. The waves crashing against the cliffs are a spectacular sight to... More

There is not much to see there unless you like the sea and the cliffs. This is just a short walk around the former cave the top of which has collapsed and what now forms like a sea whirl pool. Nice little stop when you are travelling along the coast. I wouldn't make a detour especially to see this if... More

Excellent views - right on the cliffs. It a bit funny because you walk really close to houses, worth it.

Although it was a rainy day we had an amazing time. Views are stunning, so definitely worth a trip even on a typical Scottish day. Make sure you go prepared, with proper shoes and warm clothes, cause you never know. As a person interested in photography, I would say this is a must if you want some gorgeous pictures.

Walk along the cliffs from Cruden Bay to Bullers of Buchan and enjoy the views with lots of birds. Best to walk when there is not too strong a wind. The Bullers of Buchan are a tremendous sight.

This is truly a wonderful walk on the wild side . The views along the path ( narrow in parts ) show just how lovely this part of Scotland is . Be sure to take your binoculars with you to watch the sea birds as they nest and dive for food .
