A sign of the times
A sign of the times
The dune system at Rattray Head is a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to its habitats, birds and land forms and woe-be-tide anyone who drives onto them. Quite right too.

Ironically, at Menie Estate a few miles to the South, another, possibly more important, dune system with the same SSSI designation is under imminent threat of development by the Donald Trump organisation which wishes to turn it into two golf courses together with a 450 bedroom hotel, 950 holiday homes and 500 houses. Its survival or destruction is to be decided at a public enquiry in the summer of 2008.
