A beautiful beach in Scotland…?
I’m looking for a nice secluded beach about 2 or 3 hours drive from Glasgow, preferably on the west coast for a cheeky weekend away with the missus, a metal detector and a picnic hamper. I know there are loads, but what are your favourites?
Ps. The harder to get to the better ;o)Posted 8 years agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
Road to Mallaig has more than a few, or head over to Arachale and round Moidart – a good few IIRC that are nice n sandyPosted 8 years agodavidrussellMember
LLBT – lol 🙂
in all seriousness St. Cyrus is near montrose on the east coast and is within the 3 hour limit, and its a stunning place on a good day.
We stayed here – http://www.woodstonfishingstation.co.uk/ and its a great spot.
<edit> just read the site and its closed down now 🙁 shame.Posted 8 years agodruidhMember
Arisaig / Back of Keppoch might be just outside your 3-hour window, but not by much as they’ve now upgraded the FW-Mallaig Road.
Sanna sands in Ardnamurchan would be outside your time window too.
Oh – and can I once again show everyone the slide show of my W Isles tour last year??Posted 8 years agoHeather BashMember
Macrihannish, couple on Gigha, Sanna, Arisaig, Morar, Redpoint, Mellon Udrigle,Harris obviously (everyoen says Luskintyre but the little one opposite Scarp is Carribean)
Or, if you really want to impress then hop on the plane to Tiree and you’ve got 16 of the most stunning / deserted beaches and all within a 45min pedal of each otherPosted 8 years ago
Wow thanks for all the replies.
davidrussell – yes east is nice when there’s no harr!
chakaping – I have a sneaking suspicion you’ve got to get the tides just right or you may get stranded out there ;o)
BoardinBob – I was up that way two years ago and fell in love with that section to Durness (especially Sango – shame it’s so far…)
GW – yep, and no were not nudies ;o)
nuttysquirrel – was there last year and fancy something different!
druidh – of course and thanks
Heather Bash – hehe a bit much for 2 nights awayPosted 8 years agocrankboyMember
Never mind if it’s just outside your time window sana at the end of ardnamurchan is utterly stunning. kentra bay one click north east of matt_outandabout’s link is classic and almost always deserted just park at the bridge walk on the path past the muddy tidal beach then through the trees to the bays that face the atlantic the singging sands are spotless and often deserted.Posted 8 years agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
Arran is ace, but not that many sandy beaches…nice biking n climbing though 😉
I refer you to my previous suggestion:
Its in distance, quiet, amazing scenery etc etc.
And my new employer has another outdoor center there, where I will be running lots of staff training…life is gonna be so tough 🙂Posted 8 years ago
