Seaton Cliffs

Seaton Cliffs SSSI

The Scottish Wildlife Trust’s Seaton Cliffs Reserve lies at the south end of the SSSI. Seaton Cliffs, a reserve with spectacular sea stacks, cliffs and caves.

The cliffs are home to many seabirds including rock doves, fulmars, herring gulls, shags and kittiwakes. Look out for passing peregrine falcons, dolphins and towards Auchmithie, puffins can be seen.  Seaton Cliffs also support a wealth of flowering plants. Where spring creates marshy conditions on the gentler slopes, plants such as meadowsweet and marsh orchid grow alongside woodland flowers like primrose and violet. Sea campion and other truly maritime species, such as purple milk-vetch, can also be found.
