Goodness me! Do I need a rest day?! Oh yes! However I need to keep going. It threatened to rain all day so I wore my waterproof trousers which unfortunately gave me chaffing problems. The less said the better! I spent the day just inland of the shore following quiet lanes through agricultural communities. When I reached Collieston I crossed the sand dune wilderness of 'Forvie National Nature Reserve'. It is a shame I didn't have more time to explore it but I will return one day. My feet were aching by the end of the day and I was in some discomfort from the chaffing! I made it to Newburgh on the banks of the River Ythan and stayed at the 'Udny Arms Hotel'. I can sense the affluence in this area as I approach the suburbs of Aberdeen.
