Collieston

collieston-1Back at the start of the year in January, Collieston featured on the blog and the picture then was very different to the one this week!  The huge waves had created a covering of foam and the harbour was covered in it!  My son captured this picture a few weeks ago and the sea is certainly somewhat calmer.

Collieston is a small former fishing village on the coast and is only just over 12 miles from The Bothy.  The village lies just north of the Sands of Forvie Special Protection Area, between Cruden Bay and Newburgh.  To the north, it has rocky bays and steep cliffs, whereas to the south, there is a huge sand dune which stretches for 3 miles along the shore to the mouth of the River Ythan near Newburgh.

I love getting out and about and visiting the beautiful little villages that are so close to the Bothy, no matter the weather!.  It is amazing how the same place can look so different and what the weather can do!
