The Howe of Tarlair is a captivating cliff and slope located in Banffshire, Scotland. Situated along the picturesque Moray Firth coastline, it offers breathtaking views and a unique natural landscape.

Rising to a height of approximately 30 meters, the cliff of Tarlair is composed of layers of sedimentary rock, showcasing the area's geological history. Its rugged and weathered appearance adds to its charm, attracting visitors from near and far. The cliff face is adorned with various types of marine vegetation, clinging to the rocks and adding splashes of color to the otherwise grayish-brown hue of the rocks.

The slope leading down from the cliff to the shoreline is a mix of grassy patches, shrubs, and wildflowers.

The Howe of Tarlair is also home to a small sandy beach, nestled at the base of the cliff. The beach is accessible during low tide, providing a tranquil spot for relaxation and sunbathing. However, caution is advised as the tide can quickly rise, making the beach inaccessible.
