Came here to walk my daughter's dog and we both had a great time. Large open space, particularly at low tide, with rock pools to explore and climb on.

Hi Kingsbarns is a lovely beach with a large car park and picnic area. Your Dog will have no problem getting on to the beach as the car park is straight onto the beach. Enjoy your visit when you get there.
