Arbroath Cliff Walk

Arbroath Cliff Walk starts at Whiting Ness and ends at Carlingheugh Bay (The Flairs).  The walk takes roughly 2.5 hours there and back and includes a stop for tea/coffee and tunnocks tea cakes.  The walk is an easy amble along good cliff top paved paths however the path is not suitable for wheelchairs or prams as it narrows in places and can be exposed to the elements and drop offs.  General fitness is required and decent footwear is encouraged.
