St Combs

This week, we are at the lovely little fishing village of St Combs which is on the coast just near Fraserburgh.  We have been to St Combs before but the beach is just lovely and worthy of a return visit!  The village is named after a church to St Colm or Columba that used to exist in the area back in the 17th Century.

We had a lovely day when we went, sunny but a bit chilly.  But it doesn’t take long to warm up when you head out for a walk.  There is a lovely walk which follows the coast along the beach or the sand dunes and takes you to the outflow of Loch of Strathbeg.  It then takes you back inland between the dunes and farmland.  It is great to admire the scenery and the beautiful sand dunes.  Watch out for all the different birds – this is a haven for them!

So why not get out and enjoy the great outdoors and the wonderful country that we live in!
