(4.9/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Go for a relaxing and refreshing stroll at Dornoch Beach, featuring golden sands and long stretches of pristine coastal shallows. Pay a visit to this award-winning beach, not far from town, and explore its vast expanses of dunes, hills, and pools. Weather permitting, you can even dip your toes or go for a quick swim in the often-chilly Dornoch Firth; otherwise, simply kick back and watch for some of the many bird species that call the area home. Keep in mind that you can park in a convenient lot close to the beach and public bathrooms. Put Dornoch Beach at the forefront of your travel plans using our Dornoch vacation planner.
