  • I have often visited here to walk and clear my head. A great quiet spot to do some Qi Gong. There is also a bird hide so you can watch many species of sea bird  more »
  • I went there on 20th of June, 2017. It was a sunny and hot day in Aberdeen, so I can walk all the way down to the River Don's estuary. However, I would recommend visitors to go there in the afternoon ...  more »
  • Nice point to spot seals, dolphins, birds and jumping fishes. Also a good place for BBQ, bike riding, and going for a walk with your friends or dogs xD  more »

  • A small island of calm in the city. The nature reserve is relatively quiet and the pathways provide a pleasant walk with plenty of wildlife to be seen if conditions are right. Unfortunately it has fallen foul of graffiti artists and information boards and signs as well as walls have been damaged. A spot of sprucing up by the council would make a world of difference!
  • Lovely and largely unspoilt area with wooden boardwalks. These are currently in need of some maintenance however.
  • Well worth checking out the birdhide and seeing what's on the river
  • Really nice place to go a walk. Fantastic views and beach for miles!
  • If you like nature, this is a fine wee place to stroll around, with coastal and leafy paths along the riverside in close vicinity. Apart from the wildlife, with deer, otters and seals often seen, there's also the Brig o Balgownie and Seaton park right there too.
