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.

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.
