Scousburgh Sands Beach (aka Spiggie Beach)

Scousburgh Sands beach is a sandy beach that is adjacent to the freshwater Loch of Spiggie which the RSPB manages as a reserve for wintering wildfowl.

Scousburgh Sands is also known as Spiggie Beach.

You will need to take the rough single-track road to the beach where you have a small parking area. This is a remote area but you do have a hotel nearby that sells food to non-guests.

We have no current information on dog restrictions for Scousburgh Sands Beach.
