You feel like you're at the end of the world! Amazing views. Although a few cars parked cliffs, we felt like we had the place all to ourselves. We were here in July and it was cool and windy - bring a jacket with a hood...also hilly walking, prob not conducive to strollers, those with ambulation issues or very young children. A much longer walk to Yesnaby Castle, but worth the visit even if you only make it to one of the cliffs.

This is a great place with fabulous views. A little effort walking south pays dividends. The wildlife is also spectacular with lovely views of bird life. Do pay it a visit and put your boots on and walk along the cliffs.

Plenty of parking. Walk with sea to your right and you'll get to the 'castle' within 3/4 mile. Great views all along the path. You can also walk up the coast to a broch.

You park at the WWII gun placement and just walk. The grass is springy underfoot and, if you are lucky, the sea swirls over and round the rocks below the cliffs. Lots of people walk here but it never feels overcrowded

The walk round from the "car park" by the old world war 2 anti aircraft battery to Yesnaby castle is a lovely cliff top walk. There are plenty of nesting birds and if you're lucky you can see some puffins.
