Quirky rock formation with seats nearby to view stunning coastline. Sun was out while we were there which made it that much better. Super chip shop nearby.

Spectacular rock formation, would particularly recommend visiting in the evening to catch the sunset. Also due to location and the north facing coast the view north is dark which makes it a good place to try and catch the northern lights.

Wandered down to the Bow Fiddle Rock and were impressed, even though there was a light drizzle. Good photo opportunities. We were told you can see the Northern Lights if the conditions are right, unfortunately not during our visit

We went about 6pm on a lovely sunny evening. We missed the first sign so struggled to find it and ended up walking along some of the other pathways. They were lovely walks though so turned out to be a happy accident. Some of the...More

We stopped here while driving from Invergordon to Balmedie. It's beautiful scenery, reminiscent of Iceland. Be careful on the cliffs & hills - there is no fencing. We parked in the nearby neighborhood and were the only tourists there. The seagulls are loud and flying...More
