The village of St Cyrus has something very special at the bottom of the cliffs ……… a warm, sheltered haven for birds, flowers and insects including lots of rarities not normally found this far north!

This area of cliffs, dunes and grasslands is so special it has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and became a National Nature Reserve in 1962.

The reserve is managed by Scottish Natural Heritage and is open free to visitors. The visitor centre is normally open 10am to 5pm every day April to October and Monday to Friday between November and March.

If you would like to visit the reserve with a group or have a query please contact the reserve office on (01674) 830 736.
