Get Directions


This sandy beach links the Shetland mainland to St Ninians Isle.

The 500 metre stretch of sand is the UKs largest active tombolo – a deposition landform in which an island is attached to the mainland by a narrow piece of land such as a spit or bar.

It is well worth a look around St Ninians Isle as you have some great vies, a wide range of seabirds and some archaeological finds.

You have a car parking area next to the beach with picnic tables along with a cafe in nearby Bigton.

St Ninians Isle Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
