Trip Planner: Europe / UK / Scotland / Scottish Highlands / Caithness and Sutherland / Durness / Durness Beach
Relax on Durness Beach, a wide expanse of soft, powdery sand tucked between craggy promontories and dotted with rugged boulders. Brave a dip in the cold waters of the north sea, grab a board and hit the waves, or stroll along the wild coastline. You'll find a restaurant and bar just behind the beach, and an adjacent campsite makes an ideal base for walkers and surfers. A short walk will take you into town. By using our Durness holiday builder tool, you can arrange your visit to Durness Beach and other attractions in Durness.

Durness Beach reviews
Great for walks and swimming, paddle boarding etc. Sandy, reasonable access and pretty quiet. This is an artist dream.

Beach is fantastic unlike the campsite that overlooks it. Would recommend parking just down the road from the big campsite, have a walk on the beach and move on as there are far better sites along...
