Best Beaches in Scotland

Our selection of our favourite beaches in Scotland. Your image of Scotland maybe glens and mountains with the occassional castle or highland cooo. But Scotland is fringed any number of magnificent beaches which may not be bikini hot but they make up for it with stunning views, white sands and an emptiness which makes the heart soar. (We have a list of self catering style cottages on beaches here)

Here are our favourites top beaches in Scotland


Strathy Beach

Another lovely beach between Thurso and Tongue. Popular with surfer crowd. Pure sands and accessible with short walk.

Uig Sands

Wonderful tidal beach of white sands on the west coast of Lewis near Mangersta. Arguably one of the best beaches of them all!
