Visit Scotland's highlands and Islands for the best experience in wilderness holidays, or for a luxury holiday break in the most beautiful scenery in Scotland - choose the Scottish Highlands.

Seals on the beach

Having arrived at Sannick beach to walk our two collie dogs I met a local couple who informed me that seals were on the beach and that they also had young with them. I followed their advice and left the dogs in the car after I having taken them for a short walk and played with them near the grassy car park. In fact there is a good walk along the top of the sand dunes for walking along, you can then watch the seals without disturbing them. It is a good idea to take a pair of binoculars with you for a closer view.
