Add to this the numerous coves and bays tucked beneath these looming giants, the amazing colonies of gannets and puffins who make them their summer breeding grounds and the diverse sea-life enriching the waters below and you have a ‘must-see’ destination among many belonging to the Yorkshire Coast.
