Inland to the historic village of Fordyce
We took a wee run to the Village if Fordyce and it was simply lovely. It is a wee village dating back to 1272! The foundations of the old church of the village go back some 1400 years to the foundation of a church which can still be found in the old kirkyard.
What remains today forms one of the most interesting old churchyards in North East Scotland the interwebs say.. I do love a wander round an old churchyard. Always have and I found this one lovely, half of it was sadly closed due to some huge trees having been blown over in it.
Fordyce also offers a park opposite the old kirkyard, plus Victorian garden and a nearby joiner’s workshop and visitor centre but these we closed when we were there.
We were able to visit the garden which led to a woodland walk with a stream. We wandered the lovely narrow streets, lovely houses and cottages complete with gardens overflowing with amazing flowers.
We found a Jubilee Garden with a bench and sat there to enjoy some fruit. If you want to pass some time in a quiet and very beautiful village, then Fordyce really is worth a look.
