Shhhh you lot. There aren’t any, nope, none at all.
If you can bear to go to Mull on the ferry then Calgary bay is good. Arisaig is nice but the best bits are accessed by sea kayak, there’s a stunning location round the headland to the south of there where I’ve stopped overnight. Sanna is stunning with the right weather. Ardtoe and the beach on the other side of Kentra bay aren’t bad either.
Not really a beach but loch Coruisk is about my favourite place in the UK and the beach at the end of Glen brittle are good too.Posted 3 years agojekkylMember
*remembering an episode of ‘naked video’ featuring a company making a film promoting scottish beaches, a group of people in dressing gowns on a beach shivering, being shouted at to get out of dressing gowns and start enjoying themselves, which they do, throwing a beach ball about shouting happily. Then when cameras turn off they run back to their dressing gowns shivering*Posted 3 years ago

Sandwood Bay, Mellon Udrigle, Bettyhill, several around Arisaig, Tentsmuir as some starters but there’ll be plenty more I’m sure someone else will suggest in a minute
Some great suggestions here. My all time favourite is East Strathy near Thurso, huge, remote and deserted.
There is a beach near Gairloch which is lovely Red Point I thinkPosted 3 years agopeterfileMember
Surprised no one has suggested Achmelvich already.
Admittedly, I prefer it in winter when you can have it to yourself.
As above, Sanna is great, but the drive is a pain at this time of year. 68 mile round trip on that singleroad when everything is overgrown is slow progress…it’s really difficult to see what’s coming. I’ve got a great wee camp spot at Sanna that isn’t immediately obvious but is almost perfect. Email me if you want details.Posted 3 years ago

Speyside? Then go to Lossie – two beaches…and one looks like this…
Lovely…are the Tornados still screaming overhead on approach every 5 mins
If you tie a visit in with the Lossiemouth armed forces day you will be able to see the a Typhoon do a display that just confounds all laws of physics. The best day you could ever have on a beach.Posted 3 years agostevomcdSubscriber
Nobeerinthefridge – LOL!
Guess I’m the only (semi)local! I’d have to say that Helensburgh shades it over Dumbarton if I’m really going local…
That said, I’ve had some really nice evenings bouldering at Dumbarton rock, looking out to sea. Just don’t look anywhere else!Posted 3 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Haven’t been to all those mentioned but my favourite’s sango bay, up durness way… Beautiful location, beach itself is lovely, it’s got tons of interesting rocks and stuff. Slightly cold atlantic coast water mind!
Only thing it lacks is a bunch of streams for me to build dams across.Posted 3 years agoscotroutesSubscriber
All the best ones have been mentioned I think.
Arisaig (along with Camusdarach and Morar), Sanna, Achmelvich and Sandwood are the stand-outs. The latter is made extra special by the wee bit of extra effort required to get there.
For something a bit different, there is also the coral beach on Skye.Posted 3 years ago
