Located next to the River Ythan estuary, the Sands of Forvie are one of Scotland’s National Nature Reserves, featuring the beauty of empty sand dunes, accompanied by the sound of eider ducks and the half buried remains of a 12th Century church. Bird life is plentiful, including terns and wading oyster catchers. This beach is unspoilt and outstandingly beautiful. The Ythan estuary on this side is now protected, for the benefit of the seals. Highly recommended.
