We are continuing on our tour of the wonderful beaches that we have here in the North East of Scotland and today, our blog comes from the Waters of Philorth. This is a designated Local Nature Reserve that lies 2 miles south east of Fraserburgh town centre. The Waters of Philorth are named after the nature reserve that runs along the back of the beach. There is also an extensive dune system that extends across Fraserburgh Bay. A variety of habitats can be found here and a variety of wildlife including wildfowl and seabirds are attracted to this area.
The beach itself is popular for windsurfing, surfing or for just having a stroll along. It has car parking facilities and a cafe and if you walk over the dunes and right along the beach, you will reach Fraserburgh town centre.
The weather the last few weekends has been great for a big long walk. It has been cold but the sun has been out and we have had some wonderful blue sky days! Every day I notice it getting a bit lighter for longer and I look towards the longer days when we can get out and visit these great beaches during the week!
