Lovely walk - stunning views. In the middle of December so a bit bracing but the weather was kind enough for the sun to pop out.

We found a free car park just next to the beach, with a helpful map. We strolled along the beach, watching the birds, then explored the harbour and spent time photographing the seal playing just by the entrance. The locals were friendly too

Lovely beach, made for walking. Wide beach, clean sand, never-ending views. We also walked up along the river into the town, was very impressed with Nairn. Moving to Scotland in 3 years, and Nairn is now at the top of our list of desired locations!
