This popular beach is located at the opposite end of a long sandy stretch to Fraserburgh town.

The Waters of Philorth is named after the nature reserve that runs along the back of the beach. This is a rare estuarine environment which attracts a variety of waders, wildfowl and seabirds. There is also an extensive dune system that extends across Fraserburgh Bay.
