Once you actually find it, it is very impressive, some great views, was overcast when we went but must be amazing on a clear day, steps are hard work getting back up, views from the cafe would be great, cafe is closed on a Wednesday

This place is spectacular in the summer. The water is clear, the flowers are in bloom and its really worth the 300 or so steps back up. I would highly recommend it to couples and people who like nature. It's very pretty!

The walk down isn't for the faint hearted but hang in there it is worth it. Fantastic grassy platform above sea level but almost at bottom of cliffs. A great place to listen to the roar of the sea and watch the birds. Three Peregrine...More

Not easy to find, but definitely worth a visit. Spectacular view, steps aren't too strenous either. Just do it. And on your way back; stop at the Whaligoe Steps Cafe. You won't be disappointed.

A long way down but its spectacular at the bottom. The cove is one of the most beautiful places i've vistited in Scotland. Its a long way back up though.

Not much there. Lovely Cliff side and can see a waterfall just about and the birds nesting in the cliff. Then it’s the hike up loads of steps back up to the top.

Dogs are definitely allowed, I took mine but kept him on the leash as there’s a shear drop and no barriers between the steps and the North Sea below. I think they are open every day unless the local council are doing major... More
