Newburgh and Sands of Forvie:

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

Newburgh beach is easily accessible, with safe off road parking for dogs and children alike.  After a short walk through the sand dunes, you reach the estuary of the river Ythan and what a fantastic view that is!  You are greeted by flocks of wading birds and eider ducks calling to each other, mixed in with the barks of the seals basking on the banks of the river.  A ten minute walk takes you to the shore and all stresses and worries are swept away by the clean sea air.  I usually then walk back through the impressive sand dunes, climbing to the top to wonder at the unspoilt view of Newburgh beach.  Highly recommended to one and all!

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

Findhorn Beach is a special place – beautiful in any weather. It’s the most wonderful sight as you step across the dunes from the Bay … that first glimpse of golden sand then across the Moray Firth to the mountains beyond. If the tide is low the seals will be basking; if high, the sound of the waves meeting the shore is wonderfully energising. It’s a place of freedom, for slowing down and nurturing simplicity. I always leave the beach gloriously refreshed….and our children leave with happy sandy faces, mindful of simple family fun!

Spey Bay:

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

The beach is a place of calm, regardless of the weather conditions. The unbridled energy of the storms and the shingle moving in the waves and swell has a calming, sonorous rhythm. The sea at peace with itself and barely moving in the summer sun allows you to breathe in deeply and watch the birds and dolphins dive for fish. At night it is a great place to watch the stars and ships passing by; small fishing boats and cruise liners glittering in the darkness, with flashes of light along the coast as the lighthouses send out warning messages. I like it!
