Spent a week in Nairn and visited the beach every day, even when it was raining and the foam was lying on the sand like lines of sponge. It is such a beautiful beach, sand golden and goes on for miles. Loved just chasing waves and walking along collecting shells. Looks like all the dogs of Nairn appreciate it too,... More

What a fantastic beach. Gorgeous sands. Good for bird watching, and spotting dolphins. Also, brilliant for building sandcastles.

An excellent stretch. Not swamped with tourists. Clear sands. Not commercialized. A nice promenade to walk as well. Stunning unspoiled views looking out to the see. Probably my favourite Scottish beach after St Andrews

This is a broad, clean and lonely beach - simply gorgeous to stroll along and to feel the wind in your face and hair.

Miles of white sands and dunes with lovely views across to The Black Isle. A choice of two beaches, one for dogs and one not. sometimes visitors can get lucky and see dolphins in the Moray Firth late afternoon, early evening feeding in the bay.

Lovey walking along the beach front.Inverness is very close if you want the big stores with plenty of food outlets.Brodies is very worthwhile, it has the most beautiful food hall and they have a new restaurant.

Gorgeous, beautiful and amazing!!! We could walk for miles and miles along this beach. The kids love dipping in and out of waster for shells and crabs, the dog loves chasing sticks into the water endlessly and we love the peace and quiet of a stroll along the beautiful white sands. Heaven !!

Golden beach and blue seas. Great walks and fantastic views of the Moray Firth, quaint harbour and tea rooms along the front.
