The sandy Collieston blue flag beach is located in a picturesque village north of Aberdeen, on Scotland’s eastern coast.
In the 19th century, Collieston was a busy fishing village with an excellent natural harbour. To improve the safety for boats, breakwaters were constructed. This caused the harbour to fill with wonderful golden sand, creating the idyllic sheltered beach of today.
When entering Collieston Village take the first left past the church to the car park. Then follow the path heading South around the headland to the village harbour. The beach is contained by the old harbour walls.
