A winter's walk

A recent walk at Forvie National Nature Reserve, on the Ythan Estuary.

The walk started off following the river down towards the sea.

There were lots of birds about, including a huge number of eider duck.

Looking across to Newburgh.

Eventually you reach the huge expanse of beach.

Looking south towards Aberdeen.

The walk leads you back across peaty moorland to the car park.

Near the end was this old dwelling, which I found rather intriguing. It looks like an old railway carriage which has been converted into a house. I wonder when it was last lived in? It looks in need of a little TLC.
