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...More

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...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.
