Ettrick Bay

Contact details

Ettrick Bay, Bute’s finest and most accessible beach, sits at the north of the island. It’s a lovely long stretch of golden sand and a relatively safe haven for able swimmers, with stunning views overlooking the neighbouring island of Arran. At the start of the beach there’s a fabulous tea room (open April to October) which serves up delicious coffee and cake – well-deserved after a stomp along the sand. There's also a bird hide at the south end of the bay.
