  • Good view point. But will have to walk a couple of miles from car park to see the Yesanby stack which we didn't. However views are beautiful from the car park area as well. Need to be very careful especially with children. Loose rocks. Also very windy.
  • Stunning coastal walks along a the cliffs, it feels like walking on Mars in some places! Such a beautiful place, one of my favourite places in the world.
  • Lovely place to visit, especially if the weather is nice and sunny. Walk on top of sea cliffs with view of Isle of Hoy. Parking possible nearby.
  • Bracing clifftop walks, make sure you wrap up, have sturdy boots, a hat and scarf!
  • One of the must-places in north Scotland. Absolutely breathtaking place. Nice walks on the windy cliffs. Chance also to reach a shore.
