Beaches in Scotland
If you think of holidays in Scotland, the country's beaches perhaps aren't the first thing that spring to mind... But they should be! The country (and, in particular our region) is home to many sparkling stretches of white sandy beach. If your idea of holiday heaven is time spent on the beach then you've come to the right place.
To help inspire you, we've showcased just a few of our favourite local beaches that you'll simply love exploring during your stay with us.
Marking the western edge of Burghead Bay, Findhorn is a beautiful beach and is one of the best known in the Moray region. Seals can often be seen basking in the sun at the top of the bay.
Marking the eastern end of Burghead Bay, Burghead beach is popular, especially with watersports enthusiasts and kite surfers. The tide drifts a long way out, with large expanses of sand.
East Beach is the main beach here and is a great place for rockpooling with the kids! It’s also a popular place for spotting dolphins and even spotting dinosaur footprints and fossils.
One of the most popular beaches in the Moray region, Lossiemouth East is well worth a visit. It’s accessed by a wooden bridge, which leads through dunes to a wide area of golden sand.
We think our local beach (which is just yards from our park) is one of the best, but we may be a little biased! It’s a stunning beach, curving round to offer great views of Covesea Lighthouse
Located behind the Three Kings rock formation lies Cullen Beach – a wide expanse of sandy beach that sits in front of Cullen Golf course. It’s well sheltered and a great place for a picnic.
