I enjoyed walking along this beach however we found a far better beach a little drive up the coast later that day (the name I have forgotten). No litter and all dogs were under control. All positive things to say about the visit and I would visit again and explore further in warmer weather.

Large beach, very clean sand and sea, shells and dunes. A quiet delight! The harbour is interesting and there are lots of long walks available. Cold winds in winter of course, but wrap up well and winter is a good time to visit, not disregard.

Nairn beach stretches for miles east and west of the shoreline.The east side is bordered by Culbin Forest which has trails to explore. The views of the Black Isle are pure magic.

There are two buses from Inverness, the No 10 and No 11. The journey takes a little longer. The bus station is a little closer to the beach (about... More

Nairn beach is a beautiful walk at any time of the day, any season. Smooth sandy beaches with rockpools and amazing views. Bordered by a great path suitable for cycles, wheelchairs etc. Plenty of benches for rests and enough bins.

Nairn is a nice little town with lots of facilities and Free Parking. The beach is fun. It is on the Moray Firth and offers a good place to walk or just sit and admire the view. It is situated right next to the harbour.

Loved the scenery; very peaceful in winter. It did also have children's amusements which might keep the kids happy in summer, and facilities like toilets and a cafe (the latter not open in winter). You wouldn't go there for excitement; it's more of a place for relaxing. Good information boards.

The beach at Nairn is stunning - it goes on for miles and is impeccably clean. It was freezing when we were there so we had it to ourselves for a lovely walk on a crisp winter's day.

Been here on a few occasions this year and have to say the 1st time I saw this beech it took my breath away. Miles of white untouched sandy beaches or natural rock pools. On a beautiful sunny day this beach could rival anywhere.
