Swimming Costume

Enjoy the waves and go for a paddle but be warned, it can get very cold!

Bucket and Spade

This is more directed at the children if you are bringing your family with you. A bucket and spade on Brora Beach is enough to keep them entertained for the entire trip. With rocks to explore and crabs to catch, bringing a bucket and spade is perfect for the younger generations.


It will be so tempting that the whole family could get involved to build a giant sand castle!

Fishing Rod

If you are interested in fishing, bring a fishing rod and catch some good ones to bring back to your accommodation. You might just be able to cook a delicious meal if you’re staying somewhere with a kitchen.
