Scotland's Beach Awards are the benchmark for quality beaches which are well managed and enjoyed by people across Scotland.

Please see our Beach Guide for award winning beaches.


In 2016 Keep Scotland Beautiful began offering the Beach Award, celebrating clean, well managed and sustainable beaches. Awarded beaches demonstrate excellent beach management and environmental best practice, ensuring the maintenance of high standards.

The Award recognises excellence in beach management, access and facilities, cleanliness, safety and further enhances community engagement to reflect the needs of beach users.


Applications for the Beach Award 2017 are now being accepted. The closing date for entries is 10 March 2017.
