It’s a classic coasteering route, with magnificent views, lots of adventure and a chance for a cool dip.

This is the shortest hike on our list but by no means the least dramatic. This half day activity includes a steep climb, plenty of rock scrambling, ropes and an adventure course to finish it off.

On a hot day there are lots of chances to cool down with a dip as well as enjoying one of the best views of the bustling Aberdeen Harbour. It ranks a well deserved number 9 in our top 10 list. A great day out for all the family.
