Collieston and Old Slains Castle

This short but enjoyable circuit follows the rough coastal path north from Collieston atop some fine low coastal cliffs to reach the scant remains of Old Slains Castle, not to be confused with its more impressive (also ruined) replacement near Cruden Bay.


Rough coastal walking, return via track and minor road.
