Its a place of stark beauty. The reserve 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. Best seen from the south side of the river, there is a large seal haul-out at the mouth of the Ythan. The visitors centre is open daily April to October.
