This beach and clifftop walk near the village of St Cyrus starts from the national nature reserve's visitor centre and crosses the salt marsh and dunes, with a wealth of wildflowers, of which the clustered bellflower, Campanula glomerata, more usually associated with chalk downlands further south, is a speciality. The route passes along the beach and ascends a cliff path, later to descend again and return through the nature reserve via a grassy path below the basalt cliffs.

Information for Dog Owners: dogs must be on a lead at all times.
