Please be advised that some sections of the walk are along exposed cliff tops which are subject to coastal erosion and become especially hazardous in adverse weather. Consequently, any information provided on this website should be taken as indicative only and is not a substitute for you observing in-situ real-time conditions.

Likewise, some of the route skirts open water and traverses rough terrain. Anyone walking or cycling the St Magnus Way is reminded that they are responsible for their own safety and ensuring that their provisions, clothing and footwear are appropriate for the prevailing conditions, which may vary according to the season and can change significantly in the course of one day.

Please plan to complete your walk during daylight hours and be advised that large sections of the route are remote and have no mobile phone reception - you therefore need to be self-sufficient.
