Drive to the end of Bay Road at the western end of Wormit, where there is parking space beyond the last houses.  Follow a well defined path heading west and at low tide there are good opportunities for bird watchers along this stretch.  The path climbs gradually along field edges and crosses a burn before entering an area of young woodland.  It returns to the shore and passes some cottages on the outskirts of Balmerino.  This is a delightful place and it is worth taking some time to visit the NTS Balmerino Abbey.  This is now merely a ruin but the interpretation boards enable one to visualise what a large and important settlement it once was. An interesting feature is the 450 year old sweet chestnut tree, planted by a Spanish queen. There are well kept lawns with peacefully sited seating.

Leisurely Walk: walks for reasonably fit people with a little country walking experience. May include unsurfaced rural paths. Walking boots and warm, waterproof clothing are recommended.
