Even though the wind was brisk and did not invite one to dally, we could hardly bring ourselves to leave this amazing spot! Dramatic rocky coast and you can get very close! There is a tiny graveyard with a memorial to an unknown sailor. Well...More

Take the time to do this hike and you will not be disappointed. This was the best hike we took on the Cabot Trail because the scenery is absolutely stunning. I would recommend this experience above the Sunset Trail.

Gorgeous views abound! I parked at the trailhead but next time I’d part by the harbor and walk up... there’s only parking at trailhead for about 5-6 vehicles. No maps but everything is exposed so you can’t get lost. I hiked for about an hour....More

Would recommend to anyone to do this trail! We parked down the road since there’s not a lot of parking available. It’s approx 7km around if you do the entire trail. There is no one set route around either. Multiple paths

Definitely worth the trip to Dingwall to hike the trail. Beautiful open trail with lots of views of the coastline and not too many people!

A local told us to make it a point to visit here and it didn't disappoint, the view was amazing and a great place to do some driftwood looking in the rocks. Not a long visit but well worth the stop.
