Rockcliffe is one of Scotlandís prettiest stretches of coastline. Itís perfect for exploring, with a network of paths giving access to most of the area Ė including the important Dark Age trading post of Mote of Mark. A mosaic of broadleaved woodland, wildflower meadows and heathertopped rocky outcrops provide a range of wildlife habitats. Spring offers a stunning display of bluebells, with warblers and other birds arriving to breed. In summer, a diversity of butterflies brings colour to the meadows. As the autumn colours appear, the swallows depart and wildfowl numbers begin to build. And the harsh winter months see large numbers of ducks and waders congregating in Rough Firth. Rough Island is a 20-acre bird sanctuary with nesting oystercatchers and ringed plovers. To prevent disturbance, please donít visit the island during May and June.
