Seaton Cliffs and Auchmithie, Arbroath

This classic coastal walk explores the Seaton Cliffs which extend north from Arbroath and have a wealth of red sandstone formations. The walk continues as far as Auchmithie - where there is a popular restaurant; the return is by the same outward coastal route or you could shorten the walk by taking a bus back to Arbroath.


Good coastal path, mostly surfaced but with a rougher section down to a rocky foreshore with steps.
