  • Stopped for a walk along Nairn beach as it was a nice day. Lovely clean scenic beach with plenty of restaurants and ice cream shops. Very nice.  more »
  • We visited both East Beach and Central Beach. Parking close by and beautiful views of the Moray Firth. Great place for dog walking.  more »
  • In fact the beach is located on a wide mouth that starts in Inverness and where the river Ness empties. The front, the sides of the far north of Scotland. Right offshore, we got the feeling of being on the beach. One of the qualities of the Scots is their respect for nature, the place has kept one side almost wild. He must turn around and remember that the city is 2 steps. Luckily it was nice and soft. A pleasant moment of relaxation that we would have extended well.
