Strathlene Beach - Grampian

Strathlene is a sandy beach which is surrounded by rocks and backs onto a grassy area. It is located on the Moray Firth coastline, near the town of Buckie.

The beach was once a very popular destination for day trippers and it used to have an outdoor swimming pool, although this has now closed down. Also, much of the beach has been lost due to coastal erosion. However, it is still an excellent place to go for a day at the beach and a picnic. If you are lucky there is the possibility of spotting dolphins or even whales if you look out onto the surf.

Strathlene has fairly good facilities and there is a car park with direct access to the beach along with toilets that are also located here.

Buckie, a short distance from the beach, is a town of about 8000 people, with a small harbour. As visitors would expect, it has plenty of shops and places to eat and drink.

The Strathlene Golf Club is also located very close to the beach.
