Can you imagine anything better than having a beach and coastline as stunning as this, right outside your front door? Take a look at a couple of our favourite Sandend beach videos.

Perfect for dog lovers, sandcastle builders, walkers and ramblers, beachcombers, book readers, sand loving kids (and their parents!) and romantics.

Days and scenes like this make living in the Moray Coast part of Scotland so special, and why we make every effort to ensure our holiday cottages are special as well, so you can enjoy your time here to the full.

Of course, if Sandend beach isn’t big enough, or you want to wander further afield, you can follow the coastline footpaths. Head west past the ruins of the clifftop Findlater castle, then wind your way down to Sunnyside beach, then onwards to Cullen. Heading east, you climb the steps at the end of Sandend beach and follow the path round the headland to Portsoy. In either direction, you can be rewarded by some of the best ice cream around – but try them both to decide which is your favourite!
