Dingieshowe beach

Dingieshowe beach - Orkney Islands
© Bob Jones and licensed for reuse under this Licence

The sandy stretch of Dingieshowe beach forms the narrow istmus connecting Deerness to the Mainland of Orkney. With easy access from the main road and toilets it is a popular choice but there is always plenty of room.

Just behind the beach is an ancient \“broch mound\” which would have been some sort of defensive structure.
