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.

  • The views of the bay are fabulous and my dog had a great time. It was March but the weather was kind to us although we went through snow on our journey to the beach. Well worth a visit  more »
  • We had the beach to ourselves. It was a perfect sunny February day and the dogs had a great time jumping around in the surf  more »
  • Great beach... we visited in January, so no sun bathing! Really quiet and peaceful, stunning scenery and wildlife.  more »
