Lovey beach very clean. We just had a stroll to walk off our breakfast before heading into the village to Cocoa Mountain for a hot chocolate which was needed after the chiily but exhilarating stunning walk

Love the beach, has something for everyone, rocks (not many) compared to the massive expanse of white sand.

Beautiful beach and so clean. Just lovely. The water did look so inviting but a bit cold for a dip at this time of the year 💕

Beautiful long beach for a winter walk. We walked out to Embo and watched the sea birds on the rocks. Great views across the bay and of the dunes along the golf course.

Gorgeous beach with soft sand and dunes, great for a short walk or longer hike along the marked trails. Toilets available and a food shack serves local produce and hot/cold drinks. Parking available on site

Dornoch beach is truly beautiful, sandy beach. You can plan an endless walk as the beach is so long and when there is low tide there is a huge space. There is a small car park but we were in a hotel very close, so we walked to it every morning and evening. There is a path in between the golf course. We were lucky with the weather as it was nice and sunny and the sunrise and sunset was beautiful.

Love this place, always deserted and out dogs love it. We just love it so much and come here often. Beautiful scenery.

A beautiful stretch of beach with golden sand. Plenty of parking space and there's also a food shack near the car park and toilets if you need.
A few sea potatoes washed up on the shore which are odd looking things. A small rocky area and fringed with sand dunes.
Local bird life to be seen and people were swimming in the sea whilst we were there. Waves crashing late afternoon whilst the tide was in. Next morning the tide was out with barely any waves and revealing a massive sandy beach.
A lovely place to take a walk and get some fresh air.

The Beach is beautiful. The views and sunsets are stunning. Do not feed the seagulls, though, as they leave a terrible mess. Dornoch village is a lovely wee place to visit. Sadly, due to a rise in Covid numbers, our age and health issues, we decided not to eat out or take any chances visiting areas where other people congregated. When this is all over, we might go back to Dornoch.
