Beach in Easter Ross & Black Isle
This broad beach of golden sand stretches from the attractive former fishing village of Embo to the mouth of the River Fleet, and its whole length is flanked by high sand dunes.
Fine yellow sand and crystal clear water make this an ideal beach for a visit with the family or a long romantic stroll. Behind the beach there is a network of paths through the high
sand dunes, which are a great place to find rare plants including the spectacular burnet rose and frog orchids. The links are home to more than 30% of the world population of the
rare Fonseca’s seed fly and in summer you’ll find birds such as skylark, swallows, swifts and willow warblers in the dunes. The car park, overlooking the beach, is at the north
east corner of the village which has a range of facilities for visitors, including a communityrun shop and café in the former school.
