bridge to nowhere

famous as part of the John Muir way - if it is just a walk,running, mountain biking to surfing or even fishing - or just to be on the beach this is the place for you.

This is a lovely bay with plenty of sand. My son loved running into the waves and unfortunately getting quite wet but it was a warm afternoon. The lighting was superb so i managed to get some great photos on dry land while he enjoyed the surf.

This beach is really good for families and kids as very wide and lots of places to set up camp for a sunny day by the sea.

Visited the beach when in the area to let the dogs have a run. Nice and clean and very quite considering the weather and amount of cars in the car park. A nice beach and will definitely return next time we're in the area

Most gorgeous beach. Loads of birds to be spotted. Really good views off the Bass Rock and May Island. Very clean and tidy on our visit. Great photo opportunities for photographers. Especially the northern lights.

This beach is lovely and sandy and has a vast expanse of sand. Great place to set up camp for the day and relax. The little bridge to nowhere is an interesting feature.

A stunningly beautiful beach which is almost always deserted. Fantastic for fun and games with kids and dogs and if you fancy a bit of crabbing fill your boots - or your buckets!!
