Dunnet Bay


    Dunnet Bay is a fantastic sweeping arc of white sandy beach backed by rolling sand dunes.

    Stretching for over 2 miles, the bay is fairly sheltered from the elements and offers great opportunities to sunbathe, paddle, swim and indulge in other beach sports. The beach is a surfer’s haven and offers some quite dramatic surf when the winds are high. There are excellent wildlife spotting opportunities in the bay and a visitor centre at the north end provides details of what can be seen. 

    They bay is a haven for many types of seabirds including oystercatchers, eider ducks, curlew and ringed plover. The beach is also a great place to hunt for shells with many whelks and razor shells on the sand.
