THINGS TO SEE & DO
Nairn Central beach is a sandy accessible beach fringed by dunes. Beautiful views across the Moray Firth to the Black Isle. The coastline is home to resident schools of dolphins. Popular family beach with paddling pool, tea rooms and a summer activity programme.
A favourite with locals and tourists alike, it is sited between Findhorn and Burghead. The entrance to the beach is through a forest of Scots pines. There are excellent facilities with picnic tables and barbecue pits in the trees. There is a children’s woodland play park and well maintained toilet facilities which include an outdoor shower. There are walks through the trees, all information is displayed on notice boards. The path through the woods takes you down on to the sandy shore, miles of sand which is sheltered by the trees and dunes, a great beach to spend a day out. SEE WEBSITE for these and other beaches.
West Beach, Lossiemouth
Another popular beach, brilliant for a family day out. At high tide most of the sand is covered but as the sea recedes lots of rock pools are exposed. The sea is shallow for a long way out and on hot days is heated by the warm sand. There is plenty of parking on the esplanade which is right next to the beach. The sands curve round to Covesea Lighthouse which is now a visitor centre.
