    The cliffs can be a dangerous environment and this tour is not suitable if you are not confident on your feet or have any issues with walking. There is a chance of slipping which could lead to injuries, broken bones etc...

    -The total walk distance is roughly 2 miles on a walking path.

    -There are 2 sections where we walk down a rocky cliff path. If this is too difficult then you have the option to sit and relax with some binoculars and look for Dolphins😍


    Your tour will start at the Arbroath side of the cliffs and end roughly 1.3 miles along the path near 'The Mason's cave'. From here there is a steep path down to the beach to visit a cave, if this steep path is too challenging then you are able to wait by the bench which has beautiful views over Covehaven.
