Nairn is a relaxing and friendly seaside resort in the Scottish Highlands, blessed with three beautiful beaches, stunning scenery and two Championship Golf courses.
One of the sunniest and driest places in Scotland, Nairn is a popular family holiday destination and an ideal base for walking, cycling, touring the Highlands and golfing.
Located on the Moray Firth, at the edge of the sand-floored Culbin Forest, a visit to Nairn can bring you a surprising array of Highland wildlife-watching opportunities, including dolphins, minke whale, seals and some remarkable birdlife.
If a sunny stroll along the promenade wasn’t enough, how about a coffee, some ice cream or a dip in the sea? Nairn packs an adrenaline-filled punch with swimming, rowing, windsurfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing, wildlife cruises, and more.
And, of course, golfers can enjoy a round on one of Nairn’s two Championship golf courses – The Nairn Golf Club and Nairn Dunbar Golf Club both play host to the Amateur Championship in 2021.
You can also venture to nearby Castle Stuart and Royal Dornoch to complete your Highland golf tour.
