  • Visited on a beautiful day and the sea was very calm. Walked to North Gaulton Castle and back which was a lovely walk. Car park isn't huge but there was enough spaces on rough ground.

  • I came to see the Orkney primroses - I was not disappointed, what brave little plants to try growing here. If there's a Westerly gale blowing this is a striking place, with great waves crashing on the rocks and streams being blown back UP the cliffs and, I expect, some lovely sunsets. A great place to park up and watch or for a bracing clifftop walk.
  • An amazing place to stop. Beautiful views from the parking lot as well as miles of trails along the coastline. Can be a bit muddy and slippery l, wear appropriate shoes.
