What a lovely beach at Nairn. On a warm sunny day it is perfect. Really golden sand. Dogs are allowed. There is a little café closeby to get take away food and drink and ice creams for the kids. Toilets also and a free car park.

Gorgeous golden sands, which sits on both sides of the harbour, with the caravan park side having grassed dunes.

Clean, vast and empty! Must be absolutely wonderful on a warm summers day although it is a beautiful place for all weathers.

Take a walk along Nairn beach - beside Culbin forest. If windy or rainy - take refuge in the beautiful forest. If sunny and pleasant, you can walk all the way from the entrance to Nairn all the way along to Findhorn.

Long clean beaches - a joy to walk along. Always a few waves along this shore, more at Lossiemouth. Two beaches at Nairn. Both quiet. White sand. And seem safe with a gentle slope to the sea. Watch out for the East strand, where long hollows dip down and can catch you out as the tide changes. At low tide... More

Natural type of beach with some parking. Pathway if you didn't want to walk on the beach. Also has lots of grass area for sitting and having a picnic.

What a wonderful place. You can walk for miles on this white sandy beach, which is flanked by sand dunes and forest. Great for dogs, kite flying or just simply walking and taking in the sea air. I loved it!
