It is not for the ones who are afraid of heights, however it is interesting to see. There are a lot of birds, sometimes you may even come across their eggshells if you search. Definitely be careful with kids, or maybe better not to come...More

This collapsed sea cave is a haven for marine birdlife, and well worth a short walk from the small car park. After walking past several former fisherman's cottages and along a narrow path, the view of this natural wonder is spectacular.

Normally, take a warm coat. Can be cold and certainly windy on the cliff top. Spectacular views of North Sea and land formation. Home to gulls and 'elusive' puffins may be viewed in summer months. Must stay on paths, danger of falling!

Well worth the visit, be very careful with young children. Free Parking is available just off the main road, enjoy the rugged coastline of the north east.

Great but can be dangerous cliff walks not for the faint harded or disabled. Great for birdlinf somtimes daulfins and seals. But if you have children keep a close eye on them

A surprislng little place off the beaten track and easily missed. Worth a quick visit on a good day as it is windy and you will need a head for heights as you will need to trek along the view to get to the headland.....More

It's hard to pinpoint which part of this coastline counts as Bullers of Buchan and where it stops. The 'boiling pot' collapsed cave is very close to the car park, but the coast keeps going in either direction and you can walk for ages in...More

A few miles outside Peterhead , we drove from Aberdeen on a cloudy but dry day. You will need google maps to know when to get off the highway. Once off the highway, the signs are pretty clear. I would not recommend children or dogs...More

We wouldn't have known about this beautiful place had I not started chatting with a local lady at Cruden Bay. She recommended we visit New Slains Castle and then go to Bullers of Buchan. I'm so glad we did. It's easy to miss and the...More

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.
