Actually Id think it probably is. The terrain isn't rough. I went there with two youngish children and with supervision they were fine.

There have been reports of Puffins being seen at the Bullers of Buchan, However I have never seen them there but I did see Puffins further north of this point and spent a brilliant morning taking photographs.
