Beach at St Cyrus in Aberdeenshire

Attraction Information

St Cyrus offers a pale sandy beach great for traditional family days with castling, paddling and long nature walks available. Traditional salmon fishing with nets is quite popular here so that's nice to watch for the smalls if the fisherfolk don't mind, and you can also view the ice houses which freeze the salmon before sending off to be sold.

It's apparently quite quiet generally, and offers fairly safe shallow swimming though no lifeguard cover is provided so stay shallow and keep 'em peeled!

Immediate vicinity amenities are limited to toilet facilities. The national nature reserve lies next to the beach, so there's nice walks and oodles of natural wildlife there.
