Attraction Information

Rocky beaches have their own rugged charm and this one makes no exception! Time to enjoy the seaside at Wemyss Bay Beach near Glasgow.

This rock and shingle beach has a wild feel to it. It overlooks the bay and offers views of the countryside and the surrounding area. It's not your typical urban beach, that's for sure!

This doesn't mean you can't enjoy a lazy day at the beach! Just unwind and enjoy the sun to the sound of kids playing and waves washing on the shore with a quiet “Woosh”. Want more fun? At Wemyss Bay Beach boating is popular. You can also spend hours watching the ferries approaching and leaving the Isle of Bute.
