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'....More

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.
