  • 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 t...  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 d...  more »
  • We have been to the Bullers many times in all kinds of weather and are never failed to be surprised at how many seabirds are nesting on the exposed cliff faces , how noisy it is and also how smelly it...  more »

  • Beautiful cliff edge coastline. You can walk to slains castle from here in about 20 min. I would think twice about coming here with children. Certainly wouldn't attempt it with a child's buggy or wheelchair. I'd recommend adequate footwear as the terrain can get muddy and slippery. Also beware if you suffer from hay fever as plans are plentiful and high in places.
  • Spectacular cliffs and seabirds. Coastal path (narrow and steep in places) running north from the Bullers of Buchan and south towards Slains Castle (Cruden Bay), stunning views.
  • Always a thrilling place to visit with kids - just don't let them go too close to the edge! Puffins and seal spotting is possible. Big free car park.
  • Short walking distance to amazing views , clean , a wee car park. Recommending to everyone except kids ( as dangerous)
  • Fabulous place to view sea birds. Excellent parking facility.
