Sandside beach is a lovely beach bounding on the Reay Golf Course and close to Sandside Harbour at Fresgoe. It is probably one of the least visited beaches in Scotland. The small car park next to the beach has public toilets that are open during the summer months. The beautiful sandy beach at Sandside Bay is close to Dounreay and for this reason may not be as popular as it could be. My visits to this beach has been with my dogs who just loved it. On one occassion I also spent a fair bit of time watching an otter who was going up to the dunes from the sea.
