With pink-red granite cliffs rising out of the sea, Longhaven Cliffs offers spectacular views of seabird colonies and natural features such as sea stacks, caves and arches. Seals can be spotted basking on the rocks below and in summer the reserve blossoms with wildflowers.
Please note that the car park has been closed due to repeated fly-tipping. Sorry for any inconvenience.
The clifftop path may be unsuitable for young children.
The reserve occupies a 1.5 mile stretch of the Buchan coastline, about 4.5 miles south of Peterhead and 2 miles north of Cruden Bay.
Due to repeated fly-tipping a gate has been built on the track leading to the reserve. We are planning to create a new car park at this point, in the meantime please park considerately on the side of the access track.
Please stay on the footpath as the cliffs are extremely dangerous. The reserve may not be suitable for young children.
