Though Scotland might not be famous for its beach weather, its coastlines are among some of the most beautiful in the world, and staying in hotels in this area will afford you the time to really explore the Scottish seaside.
Go sightseeing in Durness
At the very northern tip of the country, near the town of Durness, lies Balnakeil Beach, a white sandy bay that stretches far and wide, and is backed by tall dunes. This is one of the most outstanding features of natural beauty in the area, and walking along the beach by way of Faraid Head towards Cape Wrath is a rewarding way to see this part of the Scottish Highlands.
