Scotland Beaches Tours

3 Most Popular Beaches in Scotland

  1. Clachtoll Beach, Assynt: At the northern reaches of the North West Highlands Snorkel Trail, you'll find Clachtoll Beach, a jewel among Scotland beaches. Its big draw is the banana-yellow sand, contrasting with the tiffany blue sea on a clear, sunny day. Known for its otherworldly coral, kelp views, and occasional dolphin swims, this beach is the epitome of serenity in winter and a hot spot in summer.
  2. Coral Beach, Claigan: Defying the typical Scottish landscape, Coral Beach on a trip to Isle of Skye is a tropical paradise with rugged surroundings. Contrary to its name, the beach is not made of coral but of weathered lime-rich algae known as maerl. This sparkling white material gives Coral Beach a unique aesthetic, resembling the sandy stretches of the Caribbean.
  3. Sandwood Bay, Northwest Sutherland: The allure of Sandwood Bay lies in its wild and secluded nature, a hidden gem in Scotland's crown. This vast stretch of pink-hued sands, set against the spectacular backdrop of the Am Buachaille sea stack, offers visitors unparalleled tranquillity. A combination of raw, untouched beauty and peaceful solitude cements Sandwood Bay as one of the most beautiful beaches in Scotland.

Travel Tips for Beach Tours in Scotland

  • Scotland's climate can be unpredictable, with sunny days sometimes sparse. However, the summer months from June to August typically offer the warmest weather, drawing the most visitors to Scotland's numerous sandy shores.
  • If you're based in Glasgow, remember that being an inland city, it doesn't have a beach. However, you can find beautiful beaches in Scotland near Glasgow.
  • Beware of rip currents! They are currents of water flowing from the shoreline back to the sea, often caused by a build-up of water on the beach due to wave and tidal motion. Ensure you know the tide timings and exit points when venturing across Scotland beaches or banks affected by tidal water.
  • Prepare for Cold Water Shock! Cold water shock is a bodily response to being suddenly immersed in water less than 15 °C. If possible, visit the Scotland beaches during low tide to enjoy a larger stretch of sand and more space to roam around.
  • Plan to spend around £148 ($181) per day on your vacation in Scotland, which is the average daily price based on the expenses of other visitors. This budget includes accommodation, transportation, food, and activities.
