Duncansby Head offers a dramatic experience. From the car park at the lighthouse, a short walk takes you down to the spectatcular Stacks of Duncansby, some of the most impressive in the British Isles. These imposing pyramidal stacks have been isolated by the retreat of the cliffs. Superb views can be had from the coastal path.
It is well worth continuing a short distance along the path to reach the nearest point to the stacks where the best views of the huge seabird colonies on these cliffs can be gained.
