    This massive landmark of red cliffs rises to 365 ft and is run by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).

    Troup Head is reached on foot through Northfield Farm and offers unrivalled views along the Banffshire Coast.

    Troup Head can also be viewed from the sea by boat, with trips available via local operators.

    Birdwatchers will find it an excellent place to view thousands of seabirds of numerous species in their natural habitat. Troup Head is one of only two mainland gannet colonies in the UK and features dramatic, expansive panoramic views along the Moray Firth and beyond.

    This important seabird colony contains significant populations of fulmars, gannets, shags, kittiwakes, guillemots, razorbills and there are even some puffins. Over 150,000 breeding seabirds are present here in the summer months.
