Oh I do like to be beside the sealside

Route: Brora to Golspie coastal walk, Brora

Date walked: 23/12/2020

Breaking my 'post Grahams only' rule to add a recent report of the superb Brora to Golspie walk. I see an earlier report mentions landslides and awkward rocks (not sure where), but we had no problems in 2020. I recommend walking, as we did, when the tide has been falling for a while, and then the first section is easy walking on the beach, almost all on sand, a few very short stony or seaweed sections. We abandoned the beach once the stony section became prolonged, a little before the kissing gate mentioned in the WH report, and the remainder of the walk was also straightforward. Others have posted better pictures given a brighter end to the day, but here are a few. ( now edited to add them, I think they were missing )
