This is a must see if you are in the area, it is just off the A90 so easily accessible. As stated elsewhere, children need to be kept a close eye on as it is literally one slip away from free-fall... The sea water often appears to have a unique colour to it here, which adds to the aura. It... More

A former smugglers cove. Wonderful to look at but do not take that extra step forward to 'get a better view' because it may well be your last step you ever take. People have jumped to their deaths here so be warned!

Lots of birds and beautiful scenery. Unsuitable for wheelchairs and if visiting with children keep a close eye on them. This area is exceptional for photographers

Lovely place to stop at and have a wander if you dont mind the height of the cliffs. Abundant with coastel wildlife and lovely views. A great place for photographers for sea birds and landscapes.

Part of a longer coastal path. The "cauldron" is impressive particularly during heavy seas. Braver walkers can walk all the way round the pot but the path is very narrow and it is a long way down. Also very popular area with birdwatchers. Not suitable for free-range toddlers. No facilities. Also see Cruden Bay, Slains Castle and Collieston village.

We parked in the handy car park and from there walked from the Bullers along the cliff fop to Slains Castle and back along the road. It was a lovely day and the scenery is amazing. The nesting birds have gone but still,plenty of gulls to see. Not recommended on a windy day

Breathtaking views. Much better than we had expected. Lovely area and great to walk along the cliff tops, looking down onto beautiful sea.

My wife and I were travelling north on the A 90 from Aberdeen towards Peterhead, when we decided to detour onto the A975. Near the end of the 975, we stumbled upon this unassuming sign and parking area to observe The Bullers of Buchan. After parking, the short trail to this magnificent area goes right past a few homes, within... More
