Season: winter

Golspie has a long sandy town beach, often divided into north and south, backed by grassy dunes.  The fishing town was expanded in the 19th Century to house those dispossessed in the Highland Clearances, a sad legacy.  Now it is bustling, as it sits between Brora and Loch Fleet on the main road north.  Nearby Dunrobin Castle is a fine sight, with its formal gardens a particular feature.  There’s a railway station and plenty of shops and facilities for visitors, so Golspie is well worth a visit.
