Owner description: An awe-inspiring gorge that sharply drops nearly 200 feet.
Reviewed May 1, 2018

There is a small car park, this is generally adequate, but can get quite full at busy times. The cliff top walk is exactly that, there are no shops, cafes or facilities. It is a local walk with some wild cliffs, small inlets and 'stacks'. There are a variety of different breeds of sea birds nesting along this area and some attractive wild flowers growing at the sides of the footpath. Due to the nature of natural cliff tops this is not a safe place to allow children to play, or walk unsupervised. It is virtually unspoilt, please leave it that way.

This is a beautiful spot ,approximately half an hr from Aberdeen. The turquoise sea and the overhanging cliffs...impressive and majestic , with a touch of adventure.The rock formations and the collapsed sea cave vaguely reminds you of the capri islands. Cliffs are home to lot of birds, and you can see seals too..

I went with my husband aand two sons,aged 8 and 11.safety is an issue if kids run and climb as any carelessness while walking across the cliff edge can be perilous. There are no rest rooms or comfort zones, no place to get food or water,so be prepared. Car park is free and only a short walk from there takes you to the spot..Avoid going on a rainy day as path can be slippery. You may end up being the only people there, it's not a busy place.

You can also explore small village of ellon ,crudeness bay and slains castle which are all close by.

Not for the faint hearted - there is one small section with very narrow path. Dangerous during strong winds. Not and never for kids. But a beautiful sight...

Good walking shoes are a must. Parking is good. Cliff walks and views are fantastic as are the many nesting birds on the cliffs. Not advisable if you don't like heights.
