We visited here while doing the NC500. The sun was out and the waters were crystal clear! The walk down is just stunning with all the birds nesting in the cliffs. The walk up is admittedly much harder! The chap who looks after the steps...More
Fantastic trip down the many steps to the old harbour. Dramatic cliffs and bird life in abundance. Steps back up could be a challenge for the unfit. Back at the top a delight to meet Wee Davy and hear all about the history of the...More

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 maintenance work on them or really bad weather. When I went there was a council worker doing some minor repairs on the lower steps but they were still open to the public.
