Really nice beach even on a cold wet day compared to some of the stoney beaches. Clean and nice white sand. Handy to Fish and Chip shop and local shops in general. Small boat harbour.

The place and the beach is beautiful to visit during summer. If you like to go into the waters this beach in Nairn is perfect as the water is clean. Nairn is a beautiful place near Inverness.

Spent so much of our holiday on the beach, gorgeous white sand, great for shell collecting, amazing views and fantastic opportunities for watching the sun set. One of the nicest beaches I've ever been on.

One long path runs all the way along the beach great for walking and the views out to sea . We found lots of things to do and see making it a great day out.

Had a lovely stroll along the east beach this afternoon, no signs of restrictions on dogs running free. Lovely clean sands.
