Aberdeenshire has some of the finest beaches in Scotland with long stretches of golden sand, often almost empty! We also have some of the best surf! Picnic, walk, surf or fly a kite - or visit some of our rocky shores and take a look at what's happening in the rockpools; there's something for everyone!

Fraserburgh Beach

We've put markers on the Google maps below to show you some of the best beaches - blue markers for rocky shores with a chance for good rockpool investigations, and yellow markers for some of the best stretches of long golden sands. Always check the tide before visiting!

If you know of a beach that you think should be included, please let us know! Please send us your pictures, if you are happy to share! Go here to find out how to contact us.
