After a busy week at work we were looking for an easy walk to do and I had wanted to see what was over that rough looking bridge at Lossiemouth . We set off in the sunshine over the bridge which is much more solid when you are on it then turned right across the floodplain . The tide was well out and the going was soft in places but interesting going up by the river. These tidal areas are never the most attractive but once into the forest it was lovely . Just at the entrance to the forest my wife pointed out a lizard basking on an old tyre , it was all of two inches long !

The track through the trees was very pleasant and there were paths leading off here and there . We stuck more or less to the recommended route and soon we were walking along the stony beach where we passed a cute beach shelter / fire pit thing .

Then it was a relaxed walk over firm sand back to the car . A great wee walk .
