This walk starts near the mouth of the River Ythan. After following the side of the river, the path leads over sand-dunes to the seashore. It is an area rich in birdlife and some parts of the dunes are restricted in the breeding season. Continuing northwards along the beach of golden sands, the route then goes slightly inland to follow a coastal path past quiet bays and clifftops, to the village of Collieston.

The return route through the nature reserve passes near a visitor centre, then takes a more inland route back to the car park over old sand-dunes. It is an area with great diversity of both bird and plantlife.

Navigating across the sand-dunes may be tricky. Walkingworld would recommend a compass or GPS to assist with this part of the route.
