Unspoiled, vast, serene, wild and beautiful stretch of beach. We went up to where the 7 mile forest meets the beach, enchanted!

Went for a bracing walk east from the Golf View Hotel for 50 minutes until we reached a wee river and then turned back. Beach was very clean. Even at high tide you can walk through the dunes and there is a pathway from the marina west to the Golf Course with plenty of interesting sights and markers. Highly recommended.

Lovely long clean beach to walk along. Would be good for children to play on during the summer.. It has easy access from the car park.

The beach is miles of sand and the sea sparkles. A great place for paddling, dog walking even in winter.

Nairn beach on a summers day is hard to beat and on a winters day it is bracing. Lots of space and usually not many folk. Head towards Culbin forest and enjoy the scenery on the north side of the Moray firth.

We had a beautifull 90 minute walk along the shore. You can walk for much longer of course. Lovely walks from the Newton hotel
