the grand tour

About the tour

A truly awesome trip down the coast from Stonehaven to the spectacular cliffs of the RSPB nature reserve Fowlsheugh which we visit are packed with more than 130,000 breeding seabirds during the spring and summer months, these include puffins, guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes and fulmars. Other wildlife that frequent this coast which you may spot on the way are Seals, Dolphins, Minky Whales and if your real lucky a Mermaid. 

As well as the wildlife we will be paddling below the iconic Dunnottar Castle and exploring all the numerous  Caves and Coves along this dramatic coast.

To top it all  when he finish we will be picked up by Stonehaven Shell Fish and Boat Trips super pimp boat and taxied back to Stonehaven. This is a jaw dropping tour!
