Lovely Location, Good food, spacious family room.I was surprised at the size of the family room and think a lot of hotels should equal this. It stated 2 single beds for the kids but we were given bunked beds that proved to be rather uncomfortable. My kids complained that the springs kept poking them. The spa staff seemed helpful and lovely. Although ...

Needs some updatesA beautiful building on beautiful grounds. The rooms and beds are a little run down and need upgrades. Seems to cater to bus and large groups. Had to move due to unexplainable noise plus walls are thin and you can hear your neighbors tv. Once I moved into separate building (cottages) everything changed; ...

The Scottish Highlands may be best known for their mountain vistas and lochs, but a trip to the shores will give travellers a chance to see the country's stunning coastline, with everything from stretches of colourful sand, to secluded bays and rocky cliffs.

There are numerous beach hotels scattered throughout the many fishing towns, coastal lochs, and islets of the Highlands, and all can be easily found using Expedia’s search tool. The west and east coasts both provide their own unique atmospheres and are equally stunning in their own ways.

The Best of the Highlands’ Beaches

If you’re looking to escape the city life, an isolated spot like Sandwood Bay Beach in Lairg will not only provide you with one of Britain’s most reputedly stunning and unspoiled beaches, but it is also backed by a freshwater loch that is filled with brown trout if you have an interest in fishing.

On the east coast, the Moray Firth is home to the golden sands of Nairn Beach in Nairn, and boasts pristine waters for relaxing walks by the sea or for scuba diving and underwater exploration. A trip out to the Black Isle will also bring visitors up close to marine life such as spotted seals and dolphins.

A visit to the Highlands’ coastline will surprise you with its world-class beaches and stunning blue seas.
