Kilbride Bay


    Also known as Ostell Bay, Kilbride Bay is clean, safe and a great beach for families.

    Located on the southern coast of Tighnabruaich on the Kyles of Bute, Kilbride Bay is a crescent-shaped beach with magnificent dunes and beautiful views of the Isle of Arran.

    Known as one of the best beaches in the area if not Scotland, Kilbride Bay is a wonderful destination for paddling and swimming. Look out for a variety of fascinating wildlife including seals, otters and porpoises.

    To reach Kilbride Bay, take the B800 from Tighnabruaich and Kames to the crossroads at the village of Millhouse, turn left towards Ardlamont and follow the single track road until you reach Kilbride Farm.  Park your car in the lay-by at the side of the road, and from here it’s a 15 minute walk to the beach.
