  • Just outside the city, a walk on the beach is a must, the sunset seen from here is lovely. It seems to be far away from any town, the houses are just behind our backs. regenerating

  • Designated a local nature reserve in the early 1990s, Donmouth Local Nature Reserve is a picturesque area of Aberdeen where the estuary of the River Don meets the sea. A great place for walks or bird ...  more »
  • There are nice riverside paths from the coast to Brig o Balgownie on both sides of the Don. The bird hide gives good views for both birds and seals yet doesn't feel too secluded.  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.
