Missing your WILDHOOD? Let us help you reconnect! This summer, we’re sharing some of our favourite places to enjoy a family #staycation - with optional camping - come rain or shine.
First up, if you’re looking for sea, sand and fun in spades, here are 5 Must-Visit Beaches….
Fond of sand dunes and salty air? This east coast beach will be seaside heaven. Follow signs for Lunan Bay off the coastal route between Arbroath and Montrose and head down the single-track road to this hidden gem. Stay on the simple campsite just behind the huge dunes - www.lunanbaystays.scot - breakfast at the Lunan Bay Diner, bbq at your own pitch and play upon miles of soft, golden sands overlooking the North Sea.
You don’t have to be on the coast to visit the beach! In the heart of the highlands and the Cairngorms National Park, you’ll find the highest beach in Britain at Loch Morlich, near Aviemore. There’s a watersports centre, a wee beach hut cafe and snow-capped mountain circling the water. Also, a short meander through the woodland play area, will take you to the relaxed Glenmore Campsite.
Head into the wilds of the West Coast, an hour north of Ullapool and follow a single-track road down towards the sandy bay. You'll be met by highland cows, uninterrupted views of the Summer Isles, the almost mythical ‘Split Rock,’ old fishing stations and Flossie's Beach Store - an off-the-beaten-track shack serving up essentials, little luxuries and real barista coffee. Also, there’s a great wee pie shop in nearby Lochinver. Where to stay? Pitch your tent close to the sand at Clachtoll Beach Campsite.
Discover one of Scotland’s not-so-hidden gems in the East Neuk of Fife, an area known for its string of pretty fishing villages and a microclimate offering milder and drier than average weather. Pittenweem has a couple of cute, wee beaches, pitch and putt, cafes, a historic harbour, the#PittenweemChocolateCompan
#CalgaryBay, Isle of Mull
Beyond the ferry crossing and tourist trail to Tobermory, discover wild camping with benefits. There's a handy wc nearby and you'll wake up to views of white sands sweeping along the edge of a crystal atlantic ocean. Read more at The Independent https://ind.pn/2WJFgmu
