Bullers of Buchan

Bullers of Buchan 2 Bullers of BuchanThis week, I have added on a few pictures of the view that I captured at Bullers of Buchan.  Located off the A975 just north of Cruden Bay and about 20 miles from the Bothy, the Bullers of Buchan is a collapsed sea cave with several stunning natural archways.  The collapsed sea cave forms an almost circular chasm called the “Pot” which is about 30 metres deep where the sea rushes in through a natural archway.

The cliffs at Bullers are a fantastic nesting site during the spring and summer months for seabirds including kittiwakes, puffins, fulmars, shags, razorbills and guillemots.  It is also possible to see gannets, grey seals and even dolphins passing by from here.  The scenery here is wonderful and during the summer months, the cliffs are an array of colour from all the wild flowers.  Great for photographers!

There is a car park in which you can park for free and this leads to a few footpaths.  If you fancy a coastal walk, it is possible to walk from Cruden Bay to Bullers of Buchan.  This walk is about 4.5km long and takes you past the ruins of Slains Castle, which appeared in my blog last week.
