Information for vistiors
Planning on visiting an award-wining beach? Great! We've put together some information to help you get the most from your trip.
Getting to know and understand our coast and inland waters is an important part of looking after and valuing the beach environment. Scotland has much to offer and our beaches are great places to explore, often close to heritage sites or offering great wildlife watching opportunities.
Scotland's coasts and seas are dramatic, varied and highly productive. Most of us live within only a few kilometres of the coast and wherever you are in Scotland, you are never more than 65 km from the sea.
Surveys and citizen science are a great way to learn more about the environment and also to contribute to our overall understanding of specific environments. Several organisations have easy to access citizen science projects that you can get involved in.
