I love to go to lots of places like Ullapool and Skye but you cant just chuck the dogs in the car and be there in 20 mins! But Cullen is just down the road and with lots of options of walking routes Cullen is not just a place to go to the beach!
One of my favourite hills is the Bin of Cullen which over looks Cullen its a great walk for all the family. On the clear day there is amazing view of the Moray coast line and the hills and mountains in the Blackisle. https://discovercullen.com/bin-hill/
Next stop on my virtual tour of my favourite places of Cullen is Cullen house. The beautiful building that was built in 1602 although it is now converted to separate private dwellings. The grounds can be visited on a Tuesdays and Fridays from 1.30pm till 4.30pm https://discovercullen.com/cullen-house-cullen-auld-kirk/
Cullen is famed for their amazing beach but instead of heading for the main beach of the 3 Kings. We are going to a stunning beach called Sunnyside that can only be reached by foot.
No walk to Sunnyside beach is complete without walking a little bit further on to visit Findlater Castle. The first historical reference to the castle is from 1246. The remains that are still there are from the 14th-century rebuilding. http://www.findlater.org.uk/Castle.htm
This walk has several other hidden gems not to be missed but you can find them for yourself! The walk can get very overgrown in the summer and some of the paths are narrow and can get slippy when wet. https://discovercullen.com/sunnyside-beach-and-findlater-castle/
