Muchalls Beach

Muchalls beach has a rugged charm, full of sea stacks, arches and caves although great care has to be taken when descending the steep slope.

The long bay to the south of the village has now been developed into one of the Scotland’s better coastal bouldering locations.

Muchalls Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
