The spectacular cliffs at Fowlsheugh are packed with more than 130,000 breeding seabirds during the spring and summer months.

The largest mainland seabird colony on the east coast of Scotland, the cliffs support populations of some of Scotland’s most iconic and favourite birds including guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes and a small number of puffins. 

Offshore, seals, dolphins and other cetaceans contribute to the unique and stunning nature of Fowlsheugh. A colourful coastal cliff top walk over grassland to view thousands of seabirds with a stunning backdrop of 30-metre sea cliffs should not be missed. Although the seabird experience is limited to May to early August, Fowlsheugh provides a great walk for all months of the year.

Space for parking is limited, and not recommended for motor homes. Please do not park in the passing places along the road.
