An easy half-day walk along dramatic clifftops beside farmland, from the Scottish east-coast town of Arbroath to the former fishing harbour of Auchmithie. It would be lovely on a sunny day!
- The most memorable aspects were the rock formations.
- The worst bit was the dull damp winter weather
- The funniest bits were the giant sprout plants – and the Tai Chi performance.
- A word of warning to others is to take care along the clifftops – and not to take lively children or dogs!
- I was surprised by this dramatic scenery so close to Arbroath.
