Like Dunnet Bay, Sinclair’s Bay in Caithness features two beaches, Keiss and Reiss, with differing natures.  At the northern end of the bay is the wild and desolate Keiss beach, with its remote harbour.  Here the beach is rocky, with some sand at low tide.  Reiss beach, on the south side of the bay, is sheltered and sandy.  It attracts more visitors, with breathtaking scenery and dunes to explore.  This is a favourite location to see the Northern Lights and the sun doesn’t seem to set in late June.  Highly recommended.
