Scotland’s Beaches

Scotland is a beautiful country and one of my favourite things to do is see as much of it as I can. I love the miles and miles of coastline and our spectacular beaches that transport you as far away as you could possibly want to go from the hustle and bustle of city life.

This January, I visited Lossiemouth. It was a beautiful, sunny day – if a little chilly(!) – but just look at that almost endless beach strecthing into the distance.

And, not long after the trip around the North East, I was on the West coast at Troon. Not quite as sunny, but an invigorating stroll along the beach really boosts the spirits! Just look at that terrific sky too!

Here’s a picture of the beach looking out from a campsite in Durness on the North of Scotland:

And, from a couple of years ago – some kite-flying on Tiree’s Gott Bay:
