Tyninghame Beach (Ravensheugh Sands)
This long sandy beach is often cited as one of the finest in the South of Scotland. A wild expanse of golden sand backed by dunes the beach here is often deserted except for during the summer months.
Set a little way from the nearest parking it is a fair walk to the beach. Depending on where you park this can involve a scenic walk through the old pine forests at either end of the beach.
You’ll know you have arrived at Tyninghame beach when you can see the mighty Bass Rock a mile or so offshore. This craggy rock is home to a lighthouse and huge colony of gannets.

Tyninghame Beach Reviews
Great beach with lovely views
This beach is picturesque from a few locations. If you walk to the south of the beach and up onto a rock towards trees you have a stunning view across the coast. This area is amazing to watch the sunset.
