Landscapes & Nature See & Do


Forvie National Nature Reserve (NNR) covers almost 1,000 hectares of sand dunes and dune heath between the North Sea and the estuary of the River Ythan. It is home to a rich variety of wildlife. Forvie is particularly renowned for its birds. These include a breeding colony of eiders, four species of breeding terns and a wealth of wildfowl and waders.

Also known as ‘Sands of Forvie’ as the large areas of sand dunes that dominate the southern end of the reserve have been compared to the Sahara Desert.
