Long Description:

Buddo Rock is a sandstone sea stack on a raised beach half a mile north of the village of Boarhills on the east coast of Scotland in the Kingdom of Fife.

The rock was once part of the cliffs behind and remained the only strong enough rock to withstand complete erosion. All that remains is the rock and its strange surface which resembles waves. On the coastal side the erosion has formed a natural arch, a narrow defile with the top barely clinging to the rest of the rock.

The rock and the arch are easily accessible, being on the direct route of the Fife Coastal Path which passes within a few yards on the section between St Andrews and Boarhills, where it cuts inland after passing the rock.

Photo of the Arch by itself?: yes

Type of Arch: Coastline

Type of Material:
Eroded coastal sandstone rock
