Loved this walk over to Portknockie via the viaduct and then back on the beach. Lovely views and a lovely clean beach. Worth stopping at the coffee van at the car park near the golf club if it’s there on your return!!

We took our dog for a walk along the beach and he loved it. Very clean and great scenery. Despite it not being a warm day there were several people enjoying a swim. Well worth a visit.
