IMPORTANT - 24th December - paths closed
Due to wet weather the cliff at St Cyrus has become unstable. There have been landslides on the path down from the village to the shore and erosion of the cliff top path. For safety reasons both of these paths will be closed until further notice.
Wild and wet
The natural barriers of inland cliffs and a seaward ridge of sand dunes protect the St Cyrus grasslands from the ravages of the weather, creating a small strip of warmth nestled on the North East coast. In summer the reserve is awash with colour and life, from the intense purple of the clustered bellflower to the constant movement of countless butterflies and moths. Soaring above all this, peregrine falcons circle high in the air, waiting for an opportunity to dive on their prey.
