Durness Beach, Durness

5.0
#1 of 6 in Outdoors in Durness
Relax on Durness Beach, a wide expanse of soft, powdery sand tucked between craggy promontories and dotted with rugged boulders. Brave a dip in the cold waters of the north sea, grab a board and hit the waves, or stroll along the wild coastline. You'll find a restaurant and bar just behind the beach, and an adjacent campsite makes an ideal base for walkers and surfers. A short walk will take you into town.

    This beach hosted a glamorous sunset and the fine sands were the cherry on top. Hardly any people which made it even better.  more »
