  • Two beaches. The west beach is closer to the town and busier. The east beach is larger and quieter. Lovely place to be.  more »
  • The beach is a great spot to feel the weather moving across the Moray Firth, views of the Black Isle, Nigg, and mountains beyond. Good for a walk whatever the conditions.  more »
