Near Cruden Bay in Aberdeenshire, Scotland are some stunning natural arches eroded into rock faces. These are known as the Bullers of Buchan. This collapsed sea cave still retains some of its roof and though narrow in parts can be walked around.
At the extreme point of this circular chasm next to the sea is an area known as The Pot which can carefully be overlooked to show how the rock face earned its nickname. The drops here are sudden and long, so do take care. Children and dogs should be carefully supervised.
From Aberdeen take the A952, passing Ellon and Newburgh. Avoid the first two turn offs to Cruden Bay and take the A975. Look for a car park on the left hand side which is marked with a Bullers of Buchan sign. Park here for free and follow the signs.
