“Nice place for peaceful walks”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Great place for nice quiet walks, walk and discover the Ruin of Forvie church and Hackley bay beach or continue on to Newburgh and the Ythan estuary.

“Not sure I should tell you how good it is - I like it to myself!”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

I walk here at least once a week and love the peace and quiet. Which is why I'm not sure I should really be telling people how beautiful it is! Oh well. Huge sand dunes, sandy beach, mud flats, grey seal haul out, breeding terns, eiders, and piles of other wildlife. Oh, and the car park just outside Newburgh has just been re-surfaced (if that's your kind of thing).

“absolutely beautiful”
Reviewed August 17, 2005

I absolutely loved this reserve, hiking trails that take you right through the sand dune system to the beautiful beach area. We were there in the spring and there were numerous birds nesting in the tall grass. I would definitely recommend taking some time and hiking in this area.
