Gills Bay Beach


Gills Bay Beach isa by a small harbour and pier but can have some dangerous rip currents.

Seals can be seen at all times of the year, on the rocks and swimming in all parts of the Pentland Firth. They usually bask on the rocks on the falling tide since it saves them having to move as the water rises.

Popular surf spot for the experts.

Parking available by the harbour.
