Towering cliffs. Rugged beaches and shore. Did not know this existed but will be back. Very few walkers this weekend. If you are healthy not too challenging.

A walk along the coastal trail of the seaton cliffs is interesting and very invigorating. Popular with dog walkers, families, there is a lot to see from various sea birds, dramatic skyline and the waves crashing off the cliffs. Wonderful

Great path to enjoy being by the sea. Watching the wildlife. Admiring the coastline in all it's wonder.

Walked this path today and it was fantastic. We started at the Arbroath end and it took us approximately an hour and three quarters at a leisurely pace. The scenery is awesome and the abundance of wildlife and plants/flowers quite breathtaking. It is fairly easy...More

A fairly easy walk once you’ve done the initial climb to top of cliff. Overgrown at some bits and you must take care if approaching the edge. It’s six miles to Auchmithie and you can either walk back or get bus back to Arbroath. The...More

Unless you’re wanting company, it’s such an easy walk you don’t need an organised group. Just park at Seaton Park then follow the path and turn back when you want.

You could walk from Auchmithie where there is limited parking and access to the coastal path. However some of the best scenery can be seen on the walk from Arbroath towards Auchmithie. Here you can walk as far as you want... More
