Such a lovely day we decided to go for a walk at Forvie nature reserve, handy car park by the bridge and a short walk in. Spent over two hours walking around admiring the lovely scenery abd watching such a wide variety of birds, We picked the right day to visit as no wind.

I have walked the Forvie Nature Reserve often, and each time I find something new to look at. Even on a dull and rainy day it is wonderful.

Lovely walk, topped off by a quick look in the visitor Centre where the lady looked out a squirrel and a killer whale poster/play sheet for my daughter - she loved finding the 'sleeping' fish.

During breeding seasons you might see Osprey, Terns, thousands of terns and there is 100% chance of seeing seals at this location any time of year. Numbers can vary from a handful to over a thousand. They are best viewed from the Aberdeen side of the estuary, where you will... More

I love walking on the Nature Reserve with my dog. I find the setting very therapeutic walking over dunes to cliff top walks . I used to walk regularly over the reserve as a youngster as I was brought up in nearby Collieston
