With some of the largest sand dunes in Britain, Forvie is one of Scotland’s most dramatic stretches of coast. The mud flats of the Ythan Estuary provide a fast food refueling stop for many passing birds and the mouth of the estuary is a year-round haul out for seals. The wind and the tide are in charge here, and it’s a great place to blow the cobwebs away with the chance of seeing some spectacular wildlife.
A short, easy access trail with wheelchair-accessible picnic tables leads onto the reserve from the Forvie Centre, which has a classroom for educational use. There is also a bird hide at Waulkmill, cycle racks at the main car parks and a story trail to follow at the site of the lost Forvie village. Waymarked paths varying in length from two to four miles can also be found at the reserve.
