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

When you feel you should take a step closer to the edge to get a better look it could be the last view of anything you will ever live to see. The old smugglers cove is interesting to see but many have fallen, some by accident, to their deaths from these cliffs so beware the urge to step closer!

One can easily fall in love with this place with its exceptional natural wonder. A place full of surprises. I do not wish to reveal whats in there. I would suggest you to check it out and its worth it. Be careful when you are walking on the cliff.

Lovely cliff scenery. Started out from Cruden Bay and explored Slains Castle before working our way along the cliffs to the Bullers. Saw a seal on the rocks below and a huge amount of seabirds nesting on the cliffs.

Nice scenic on our drive from Fraserburgh to Aberdeen. Large parking lot and short scenic walk out to the Cliffs. The pathway is narrow but not at the cliff edge so a fear of heights should not be an issue. Viewing all the Sea birds is an additional treat. There are some additional trails if you would like to do... More

We had passed by this beauty spot many times and had not realised what we were missing. Some spectacular scenery from the cliffs with the sea birds hovering close by.

Pleasant walk along clifftop in the sun, but would be more dangerous when wet and windy. Wind can be gusty but you can get spectacular views of the sea. Not suitable for anyone with a fear of heights.

We parked in the (well sign posted) small car park dedicated to the Bullers of Buchan, and walked the short 5-minute walk down the path to enjoy the view. The view is spectacular, although we visited when the sea was calm and I'm sure it's even more impressive when the sea is raging, creating the "sea cauldron" mentioned on the... More

A very short walk from the small car park you find yourself looking over the edge at amazing views, many seabirds & we even saw a seal. The path is narrow & without a fence or rail. Young children & dogs would need very careful supervision, but the views are spectacular.
