Following on from our visit to Balmedie Beach and Cruden Bay in the last few weeks on the blog, another fantastic place to visit is Forvie. The Nature Reserve at Forvie is on the Ythan Estuary and is about 10 miles from the Bothy. It is one of the largest sand dune systems in the UK and is a super place to get out and admire the scenery and wildlife while blowing away the cobwebs!
There are 2 main entrances to Forvie – one is 1 mile north of Newburgh and the other one is 3 miles north of Newburgh. There are lots of laybys off the road (A975) which you can also stop at. We regularly visit, taking in a walk no matter what the weather!
This week I spotted the snowdrops out when I was out walking and am already looking forward to the warmer days of Spring time! Thousands of eider ducks make their nests and the terns arrive here at Forvie in Spring. We are not quite at that time of year yet but nevertheless, it is still great to get the boots on, head out for a walk and see what wildlife you can spot!
