Nairn’s greatest asset is its marvellous sandy beach and makes for the perfect family holiday: sand castles, lovely promenade walks (ideal for wheel-chairs), putting green, crazy golf, leisure park and a swimming pool – all set against the backdrop of the Moray Firth with its wonderful views and a chance to see the famous Moray Firth dolphins. In recent years Nairn has become extremely popular with wild swimmers, paddle-boarders, wind surfers and kayakers. The new #TeamHamish splash pad will be a wonderful attraction for children, not forgetting the outdoor gym area.

Nairn is the perfect base for exploring the Scottish Highlands and is close to Culloden Battlefield, Fort George, Cawdor Castle, Brodie Castle, Inverness and Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness. Within the town there is the historic Fishertown area to explore or perhaps a visit to Nairn Museum will reveal more of the history of this Victorian seaside resort.

If you enjoy outdoor activities there are walks around Nairn, up the river or perhaps along the nearby Dava Way. There are options for fishing on the River Nairn or bird watching at the nearby Culbin Forest, which is also great for walking. And if all this wears you out then there are lots of opportunities to relax with a drink or enjoy a superb meal at one of Nairn’s highly rated restaurants.

Nairn is also well known for its championship golf courses –  Nairn Golf Club, Nairn Dunbar Golf Club and nearby Castle Stuart. The town is well connected by bus, train and air. There is free public Wi-Fi in Nairn High St.
