My experience with beaches is limited. Before going to Scotland, I’d been to one major beach- in West Palm Beach, Florida. I didn’t care for it. It was crowded, it smelled bad, and I got a horrible sunburn.
The beach in Nairn was the opposite of that. There were only a handful of people there, and they were all friendly. There were dogs having fun playing in the water. The air was clean, if salty, and I didn’t get a sunburn.
There was a storm over the North Sea which made for steady winds, lots of waves, and some amazing clouds.
